Alcoholic drinks are inevitably going to bump up your calorie count, but some tipples are less deadly than others!


Low calorie alcoholic drinks that aren’t full of sugar are hard to find. However they’re normally the most in demand! Especially when we’re calorie counting. It is often only when you are trying to be good that you soon realise it is alcoholic drinks, rather than food, that add up the most quickly!

We are firm believers that a little bit of what you fancy does you good, and you can still stick to the diet as long as you’re savvy with your calorie intake.

Take a look at our complete list of diet-friendly alcoholic drinks in the gallery. Where does your favourite tipple rank? The list also gives you the chance to  find a few diet-friendly alternatives to try next time you’re in the pub on a Friday night – some of these diet-friendly alcoholic drinks may surprise you!

For example, a glass of Prosecco is actually fewer calories than a white wine. Especially this low calorie prosecco!  (If that’s not an excuse to drink bubbles, we don’t know what is!)

Plus, making a small change such as opting for a diet or sugar-free mixer can make your favourite tipple a lot lower in calories. In some instances you can even enjoy two of the single spirit and diet mixer for the same calorie intake of one full-fat mixer and spirit!

From a refreshing gin and tonic, to tequila on the rocks or an ice cold beer there are so many low calorie alcoholic drink options. You just need to know what you are looking for. With this break down of low calorie alcoholic drinks, you’ll never have to say no to a catch-up over cocktails or feel guilty heading to the bar after work for a quick drink with your colleagues.
