Sometimes it’s hard to portion out one serving of wine though since wine glasses’ size may vary.

As a general rule, each ounce of wine is approximately 25 calories.

A little more on the alcohol content in low-calorie cocktails

A number of calories relate to the alcohol proof! The higher the proof, the higher the calories. Here’s a list from WebMd.

  • 80-proof vodka (40% alcohol; the most common type) has 64 calories per 1oz
  • 86-proof vodka (43% alcohol) has 70 calories/1 oz
  • 90-proof vodka (45% alcohol) has 73 calories/1 oz
  • 100-proof vodka (50% alcohol) has 82 calories/1 oz

Spiked Seltzers and some Winc Wines are also low in calories too!

One more tip to making low-calorie cocktails

If you are at home or able to make your own drink, use light or low-calorie mixer.

For example, I use Trop 50 instead of full orange juice. You could also choose lemon juice or light lemonade for a sour kick. Also, Baja Bob’s sugar-free margarita* or martini mixes* has ZERO calories!

Out of them all, we loved the Pinot Grigio! The Holiday Red is another favorite.
