Exploring Light Beers: Taste, Calorie Content, and Ingredients
If you’re a beer lover looking for a lighter option, light beers might be just what you need. In terms of calorie content, light beers typically contain around 90-100 calories per can. This is significantly lower than the calorie content of regular beers, which can range from 150-200 calories or more.
73 calories per bottle. For those who love their beer at a ‘session’ strength.

Low-Calorie Wines: Finding the Perfect Balance of Taste and Health
If you prefer wine over beer or spirits, there are plenty of lower calorie alcohol options available that won’t compromise on taste. The calorie content of low-calorie wines can vary depending on factors such as grape variety and winemaking techniques. On average, they tend to contain around 80-100 calories per serving.
One wine we can recommend is the Brancott Estate Flight Sauvignon Blanc (around 75 cals per 125ml glass). To make this, their winemakers selected and harvested grapes earlier than usual to craft full-flavoured wines that are naturally lighter in alcohol than those in the Brancott Estate range.
Spirits with a Twist: Discovering Low-Calorie Spirit Mixers
Cocktail lovers rejoice! You don’t have to give up your favorite mixed drinks entirely when aiming for a lower calorie intake. By making some simple swaps and choosing the right ingredients, you can enjoy delicious cocktails without the guilt.
When it comes to spirits, many options are naturally lower in calories. For example, clear spirits like vodka, gin, and tequila generally have fewer calories compared to darker spirits like whiskey or rum.
Additionally, incorporating fresh herbs, fruits, and vegetables into your cocktails can add flavor without significantly increasing the calorie count. Think muddled berries, cucumber slices, or a sprig of mint.
If you’re wanting to drink either Vodka and Gin sodas, but dont want to compromise on flavour, we’d recommend trying a LuvJus. Using all natural fruit juice, with no added sugars, you can enjoy a delicious vodka or gin mixer (nearly) guilt free. Pick a case with all three flavours: Pineapple, mint, jasmine, Korean ginseng & vodka, Blood orange, pomegranate, Korean ginseng & vodka and Raspberry, cucumber, lime, Korean ginseng & gin. Crisp and lightly sparkling, they’re the perfect party aperitivos.
