Now we all know that alcohol isn’t great in large amounts but I understand the enjoyment of getting to the end of a working week and enjoying a glass of wine or Champagne with friends. Of all the options out there, there are some options which offer fewer calories. So here are my top 5 lower calorie alcohol choices.
1. Lindemans Early Harvest
With 25% less calories and alcohol per glass, and available in a sparking, rose, red and white. If you are a big wine drinker, you cannot go wrong with these lighter options.
2. Vodka Lime and Soda
It may be potent but with low calorie mixers such as soda water and fresh lime, a single shot of vodka contains just 70 calories
Often thought to contain a lot of sugar, it is the alcohol content in wine that bumps up the calories but luckily a little bubbly only sets us back 80 calories
With some cocktails containing as many calories as a meal thanks to their high sugar mixers and large glass sizes, a simple, elegant martini will give you just 140 calories and the pleasure of saying, ‘shaken not stirred’ and living out all of your Bond fantasies
The Sex in the City girls knew what they were doing, well with their drinks anyway and a single Cosmo will set you back just 150 calories and a whole lot of Carrie Bradshaw in a single order
And remember, this is based on one drink only!
