    When I started watching calories I went from beer to vodka and soda water with a splash of cran and a lime major calorie saver

    I drink often over weekends with my friends. I have found that I really enjoy whiskey and water or vodka with seltzer. I have found this to be the best option calorie wise, as long as you like the taste!

    It probably all works out to be about the same amount of calories in the end. Even if you choose lower-calorie drinks, you're probably going to end up at Taco Bell stuffing your face on chalupas after you're sufficiently drunk enough to think that Taco Bells sounds like a great idea. If you want to get drunk, just drink the drinks that you enjoy the most.

    Check the alcohol content in light beer, it's way less so you have to drink more to get the same effect as 10 regular beers. A lot of the calories they take out in light beer is from the alcohol. You might find the ratio of ABV to cals is better in regular beer. All beer is going to have a lot of calories. I'd say your best bet is any kind of liqueur and tonic. with lime or whatever you like. You still have to be more aggressive during the week to save up enough calories to have 10 drinks. After working that hard, it'll still set you back 1/3 to 1/2 lb of weigh loss per week compared to having the same deficit during the week and not consuming what is likely 800-1500 calories.

    Silly rabbit. Drink light beer. Same alcohol.

    nope..a bud light does not have the same percent alcohol content of say a good IPA

    Gin. On the rocks with a twist of lemon. 115 calories in a standard pour.

    I'm lucky that that was my jam long before losing weight. I make all sorts of drinks work (and my diary shows that!), but that's the best advice. The "skinny" margaritas without mixers at most places are decently low too, but I still feel funny asking for a skinny drink. Another tip is that you can use diet coke, coke zero, sprite zero, and diet lemonade as mixers too.

    Vodka, soda water, and a lime. Stay hydrated, get drunk, only 64 calories.

    average non-light beer - 170-200 calories
    1oz of 80 proof hard liquor, no mixer - around 77 calories

    Beer is more fun to drink though IMO. I'm too old to sit there and do shots all night long.

    Work the calories into your daily goal and you'll be fine. Drink what makes you happy.

    If I really want to get a glow, tequila shots, Tennessee Fire on the rocks or dirty martinis.

    Drink a shot of vodka gin or tequila or 151 rum . up. ( Squeeze a lime)

    Have something with bubbles and no calories as a backer to sip. Bubbles help the alcohol get into your blood faster.

    You said you wanted to get drunk.

    Have fun!

    Didn't know that about bubbles. Cool. Will keep in mind! I like diet coke and vodka or tequila.

    Grey goose marintinis, dry, straight up, olives
    With a side of water for sipping
    Plus when you make them yourself that is half the fun and the other half is sitting back and enjoying your fine work of making a delicious drink to indulge in.
