How many calories are in your alcohol beverage?

If you are looking to limit your calories and sugars with alcohol intake, there is a slight difference across the board when it comes to the number of calories for each one. Therefore the problem usually lies in the mix. Try mixing your liquor with water or soda water with lemon and lime. If you still are unable to do that, press your drinks (add a splash of water) to limit the amount of pop or juice used.
