More Low Calorie Drinks to Order
It can be difficult to count calories when ordering mixed drinks at a bar, as it depends on
1) how much alcohol the bartender uses in the mixed drink,
2) how much syrup is used, and
3) how large the cocktail is.
This will allow you to count calories. For example, a 5 ounce glass of a Pinot Noir has 123 calories no matter what!
