 Tending Bar: Counting Calories

Every gram of alcohol is turned into seven calories while it is metabolized. This works out to over 200 calories per fluid ounce of pure alcohol. In addition to the calories from the alcohol, many beverages also add sugar and other caloric additives.

The easiest way to reduce the amount of calories in a drink is to cut back on the amount of alcohol in the beverage - alcohol is the largest source of empty calories in almost all alcoholic drinks.
