OMG!!!! I guess our margarita night has turned to low cal beer night. Report
Not sure I will not drink these drinks but I will make sure to budget for them and not go over one or two. Report
Beware of all liqueurs!! Baileys, Chambord, Grand Marnier, Jagermeister, Damiana, Hypnotiq, Midor, Tuaca, Southern Comfort and many, MANY more. These are all sugar and cream infused. Double the calories!! Oh, and don't forget the new 'sweet tea' drinks!

Some of the flavored vodkas also have added sugar. Remember, if it tastes sweet, it's probably had sugar added.

** my favourite cocktail right now, Indio blood orange vodk, with lime essence sparkling water and a lime wedge. yummy and refreshing! Report
Great article, lots of good information.
Good article, my perferred drink is wine. On ocassion I may have a mixed drink, now that I am fully aware of all the calories, no more. I will stick to my favorite wine. Report
My first bottle of Kahla is now my last bottle. No wonder the numbers on the scale climbed! Report
If you want to make some tasty flavored martini's, Bacardi now has lower calorie flavored rums that can be mixed with plain vodka, and diet juices such as white cranberry peach, or diet cranberry if you want to do a twist on a cosmo. You can also use some of the diet lipton iced teas. They now have a sparkling one that you can add to white wine to make it a spritzer. Report
Flavored vodka adds 5 calories to the count according to the vodka companies. Report
I have a question about flavored vodka, does this worse than plan vodka? I like grape vodka and Sprite zero, how many calories and carbs are we talking? Report
I have created a pretty tasty, lower calorie Tequila Sunrise. I add about 1 tsp. of Crystal LIght Sunrise Natural Classic Orange flavored powder to about an oz. of tequila and a dash of grenadine. Add crushed ice and fill glass with water. Quite tasty! The Crystal Light has only 5 calories per serving, yet does have vitamin C and calcium. I'm going to try replacing the grenadine with a red flavor of Crystal Light hoping to cut more calories from this tasty drink. Report
Great, informative article. Printed it out to share with friends. Thanks! Report
I found this just in time for Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago. Great information. Will definitely share. Report
My favorite mixer is jello mix before it's chilled over ice with bottled water or juice for some simple reminiscent variety and flavor. Report
