I just read a pretty interesting article on here about alcohol. The last page has the calories in a bunch of different drinks. The link is- http://sparkpeople.com/resource/Nutrition_ articles.asp?id=563&page=1
or you can just search articles for alcohol. I'm pretty sure it's the first one that comes up.
Typically the general rule is clear alcohol is always best. I've always been a huge fan of vodka but I LOVE Jameson. If your going to drink a colored alcohol its best to drink it with diet soda or some other zero/low calorie drink so your not getting quite as much sugar and calories.
I second the vodka -- it's the lowest in calories. Mix with a splash of midori or lime juice, over ice. Very nummy.

Hmmm well I seem to have this problem too so here's what I have been doing. Shots with diet chasers or like Vodka with sugar free juice chasers or how about sugarfree Jello shots? I find with shots I can get drunk quicker and its alot better on my totals.

I am having a huge problem with the whole drinking thing!
I always take time for lots of water during and after a night of drinking anyway, but I'm not sure what I should drink.
My poison of choice is definately Jack and Coke...and I know that the coke alone has SO many calories. I know diet is better, but I absolutely hate it! I also don't like beer...and too much wine gives me a horrible headache.
Is there anything I could mix with that would be better? Or should I just give the Diet Coke a try?
