If you’re currently suffering through a dry January take a look at this list of 12 best low-calorie alcohol to drink on a diet. This way you won’t have to undo all of the great work you’ve done once we reach February.
I remember in college many of my women friends–ladies who were my friends, not my actual girlfriends, an annoying distinction made necessary by straight women who INSIST on calling their women friends their “girlfriends,” gender tirade over–were on sports teams. Even if they weren’t particularly gym jocks they were still trying to keep the reins on their calories for a number of reasons called men. Whoops I guess I finished my gender tirade only to start it again. I love a good tirade. My love for a tirade is at the exponential inverse of my love for a parade. TL:DR Parades are shit.
Anyway, there sport coeds would always order “rum and diets,” as in rum and Diet Coke. As a practicing coke drinker–see: my desk drawer filled with a weekly supply of coke “heavy” as it were or Coca Cola Classic, this is sacrilege. However, they were clearly onto something. There is still a way to have your
cake coke and eat drink it, too. Cocktail suppliers–where it be bartenders, recipe writers, or mix makers–have definitely succumbed to the demand for low cal options.
There are a lot of alcohol brands which are selling their products at enormous prices per bottle and they have more than $1 billion annual income. A lot of companies are making their products for more than 100 years and they are still working with full steam. Mila Kunis isn’t running around that Jim Beam factory in the dark for nothing.
However much fun or tradition are tied to it, alcohol has a very negative impact on your health, decision making and every year people die because of it.

We took much of this information from United States Department of Agriculture on the number of calories on many alcohol drinks, picked up the lowest and then sorted them by their number of calories. Also, you should always keep in mind that the number of calories varies from one alcohol brand to another because they are adding different sweets and flavors in order for their products to smell and taste better.
