I carry crystal light lemonade flavor and sugar free key lime juice in my purse when we go to happy hour Friday. I order tequila in a margarita glass with rocks, salt and lime. I add my own very low calorie mixer to make a low cal margarita. It tastes just as good to me. But, it is true that it does make me crave chocolate after I drink it. I have made it a point to only have one drink a week.

I sent this article to others, concise info. Personally, I dislike the taste of alcoholic drinks, so no problem trying to fake it.

If I drink any alcohol, it's not the calories those one or two glasses of wine that bother me, but that they lower my resistance to eat too much.

So happy to have found Budweiser's Select 55. Now I can drink a beer or two (okay- or 3!) without guilt.

...but I still want beer.

Love this. Really good info to keep in mind.
I'm a big sweet cocktail girl, can't stand straight liquor and dry wine.
But I know I'll have to say good-bye to my margaritas, except for maybe twice a month.
Oh well, feeling amazing in my wedding dress will be worth it!!!

Many years ago I started drinking just the alcohol with soda water and a lime. You have to actually like the alcohol to drink it this way. I like whiskey or gin. It has been forever since I drank rum. I would recommend not using the pre mixed mixers. Try muddling your own lime with home made simple syrup. It not only tastes better, you have far more control over your calories. I personally hate the sweetness that comes with most of the drinks. My one big vice is a bloody Mary. But in reality if the mixer is house made it has almost no added sugar!

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!
