Hey dont forget a 'skinny girl' margarita...its 100calories and 4 g of carbs per 4 oz serving. This is per spark peoples nutrition tracker. Love these!

I personally couldn't drink diet pop and alcohol . Recently I am not so sure alcohol is OK from a Biblical perspective.

Here's something I have never understood and would appreciate an expert opinion: If a drink like vodka has no carbs, what does that mean if you are a diabetic and not worried so much about the calories?

The calories for wine on here are less than I'd read somewhere previously. Thanks!

I'm printing the chart out and putting it in my purse. It'll be nice to have when I go out to celebrate my birthday tomorrow night. Perfect timing! Thanks :)

The carb content in an alcoholic drink is for ingredients that are not alcohol per se. Like in the wine chart, you'll notice that the white wines have zero carbs: no grape skins, but the red wines have some carbs: food value from the grape skin content.

Here's a question I have always can hard liquor, an alcohol, be '0' carbs? I never understood this when a friend, who is carb counting but not calorie counting, tells me that liquor is ok for him. What's the science on this?

This article contradicts itself. It first lists a Manhattan as 153 calories per 3.3 ounces, then in another chart it lists a Manhattan as 130 calories per 3.3 ounces. Check your facts and edit your articles Sparkpeople!

Great article, but I have to wonder about some of the "typical servings." For example, I have never been served a 3.3 oz margarita.

Frankly, having a glass of wine with dinner is a pleasure I greatly enjoy, but have found that it can sabotage my "best laid plans." I may have only one glass of wine, but the wine seems to perk up my appetite and let down my inhibitions, and before you know it, I have eaten more than I planned!

You forgot to include gluten free beer. Many of us are having to live by this diet and I have found this beer to be much more diet friendly. While researching this, I have found hard cider to be very high in sugar content.

I made a great choice for a diet/alcohol drink. Please understand...I would NEVER suggest that others follow my lead...enjoy life..have a drink..have fun! BUT..for the last 8 years I have chosen non alcholic beverages and diet soda.Now this is just me...I enjoy my life and everything much better..I get enjoyment vicariously when my friends drink..and when I'm around everyone has a designated driver! CHEERS! Scott.

I really like rum and diet coke as a healthy drink for my nights out. I thought this site was pretty neat for keeping me in the know about the booze calories I am putting in my body:

Not such a good idea to mix diet soda with alcohol. See the following article regarding research being done by a psychology professor where I work (Dr. Cecile Marczinski at Northern Kentucky University).
