The Lowest Calorie Vodkas
You know that getting vodka (or tequila!) instead of a mixed drink is an easy way to cut down on calories, but what are the lowest calorie vodkas?
In case you are curious, below are the lowest calorie vodkas. Lucky for you…all these vodkas are under 100 calories. That’s less than a glass of wine or a light beer!
The 10 Lowest Calorie Vodkas
Here are 10 of the most popular and lowest calorie vodkas.
Why do most low calorie vodkas have 97 calories?
Calories in vodka are based off the vodka proof, not on the vodka brand itself.
Most vodkas are 80 proof, so most vodkas have 97 calories in 1.5 ounces.
Note: Calories below are for a 1.5 ounce serving (about 1 shot).
1. Ketel One Vodka – 97 Calories
2. Absolut Vodka – 97 Calories
3. Belvedere Vodka – 97 Calories
4. Grey Goose Vodka – 97 Calories
5. Tito’s Vodka – 97 Calories
6. Svedka Vodka– 97 Calories
7. Effen Vodka – 97 Calories
8. Cîroc Vodka – 97 Calories
9. Stolichnaya Vodka – 97 Calories
10. Smirnoff Vodka – 97 Calories
Tips for Choosing Low Calorie Vodka
Vodka, like beer, has more calories if it has a higher proof.
For example, a 1.5 ounce shot of 70 proof vodka has about 85 calories, a 1.5 ounce shot of 80 proof vodka has 97 calories, and a 1.5 ounce shot of 100 proof vodka has about 124 calories.
Tip: If you want to lose weight and you aren’t sure what vodka to drink, choose the vodka with the lowest proof.
Low Calorie Alcoholic Drinks with Vodka
If you want to keep your alcohol drink with vodka under 200 calories, order any of these low-calorie drinks.
1. Vodka Soda with Lime – 100-135 Calories
A vodka club soda is made with vodka and club soda.
Since club soda has 0 calories, a Vodka Club Soda is the lowest calorie drink you can order with vodka.
Tip: A vodka soda is one of the healthiest and lowest calorie alcoholic drinks.
2. Bloody Mary with Tomato Juice – 125-200 Calories
A Bloody Mary is made with vodka, tomato juice, and spices like Worcestershire sauce, celery, black pepper, and lemon.
If you want a low calorie and healthy drink, order a Bloody Mary.
Just make sure the Bloody Mary with vodka is made with tomato juice versus a high calorie Bloody Mary mix.
3. Vodka Martini – 120-200 Calories
A vodka martini is made with vodka, vermouth (47 calories per ounce), and olives.
4. Moscow Mule with No Syrup – 150 Calories
A Moscow mule is made with vodka, ginger beer, simple syrup, and lime. It comes in a copper cup and is a great drink for fall and winter.
Ask for no syrup, as that adds about 50 calories.
5. Vodka Gimlet – 100-190 Calories
A Vodka Gimlet is made with Vodka, lime juice, and simple syrup.
6. Vodka and Diet Coke – 105 Calories
All the calories from a Vodka Diet Coke are from the vodka itself, so it’s a great option if you want a low calorie drink.
Tip: The fake sugars in Diet Coke may mess up your cravings and make you hungrier, so I would personally avoid this drink.
