DRINKING QUESTION

My recent caloric intake from certain potent potables is presenting itself upon my iliac protrusions. In English: my favorite alcoholic beverages are making my hips bigger, LOL.
Since I love mixed drinks like captain and ginger ale (but captain is monstrous in calories)--do you guys know of anything that tastes good but isn't calorically through the roof? Thanks!!

I *think* soda water (club soda) has zero calories? That could be a viable alternative to the ginger ale. Of course it will taste different, but you could get used to that.

Research indicates that alchohol mixed with diet soda gets into the system faster than a drink with regular soda causing one to get drunk faster. (Bea Ahbeck - Staff)
Barring that little tidbit dry red wine has less sugar and calories, or maybe vodka and cranberry juice.

Check out this article : http://diet.ivillage.com/issues/isnacks/0,,2skj,00.html

It would appear that the distilled liquors like gin, vodka, whiskey, and rum apper to be your best bet if mixed with a diet soda.

I like Diet Coke mixed with Malibu Coconut Rum. Malibu has 51 calories per serving.

I like Diet Coke straight. Sometimes, if I am being wild and wacky I might have lemon in it!

Carbonated water has 0 calories - that's what I like to drink these days - you can mix it with just about anything! I usually always drink it straight or with a slice of lime and ice cubes. Very refreshing and no cals!

I have gone crazy about Shweppes Slimline Tonic with ice and lemon during the current hot spell here. Fortunately we don't get too much sun in Ireland so I should be back on the beer tomorrow ROFL


Rather than cutting down on your drinks just put the bottle further away so you can get some exercise while fetching the next drink :D

Bacardi has 0 carbs. If you mix that with diet sprite or 7 up and a dash of agnostura bitters you have rum & gingerale! By the way, bethy, I know what you mean.

Vodka martinis contain all alcohol and no extra calories from mixers. 100 calories per shot. Bottoms up!
