The Best And Worst Alcoholic Drinks For Your Waistline

I don’t know if you’re ready for this. No one wants to hear their favorite drink is making them plump, but there’s a chance that’s the case. Not that we didn’t already know alcohol has a lot of calories! Obviously, moderation is key. But in case you needed the reminder, here are the best and worst drinks for your waistline…

13. Beer, Pale Ale (HIGHEST CALORIES): 175 calories for 12 ounces (Sierra Nevada Pale Ale)

12. Beer, Lager: 170 calories for 12 ounces (Sam Adams Boston Lager)

11. Wine, Red: 160 calories for 5 ounces (Cabernet Sauvignon from France)

10. Wine, White: 160 calories for 5 ounces (German Auclese Riesling)

9. Hard Apple Cider: 150 calories for 12 ounces (Angry Orchard Crisp Apple)

8. Tequila: 104 calories for 1.5 ounces (Jose Cuervo Gold)

7. Whiskey: 104 calories for 1.5 ounces (Jack Daniels)

6. Vodka: 101 calories for 1.5 ounces (Absolute Vodka)

5. Wine, Rosé: 100 calories for 5 ounces (Echo Falls)

4. Champagne: 100 calories for 3.4 ounces (Moet Champagne)

Keep in mind, the hard liquors don’t include the soda or juices you usually mix with! I feel plump now and will only be drinking champagne from here on out.
