Beer/Liquor nutrition info

We’re having technical difficulties with our Web site, so I thought I’d post you the info that ran in this week’s column. I suppose there really is no way to drink healthy, but it’s always kinda interesting to see the numbers on what you’re drinking. I was most surprised to see that Bud Select has less calories but more alcohol than Bud Light. Interesting.

BEER (12 ounces)
Budweiser: 145 calories, 10.6 carbs, 5% alcohol
Bud Light: 110 calories, 6.6 carbs, 4.2% alcohol
Bud Select: 99 calories, 3.1 carbs, 4.3% alcohol
Miller Light: 96 calories, 3.2 carbs, 4.2% alcohol
Michelob Ultra: 95 calories, 2.6 carbs, 4.2% alcohol
Corona Light: 105 calories, 5 carbs, 4.1% alcohol
Newcastle: 140 calories, 13 carbs, 5.5% alcohol
Bass Ale: 140 calories, 13 carbs, 5.5% alcohol
Guinness: 126 calories, 10 carbs, 4% alcohol
Harp: 153 calories, 13 carbs, 5% alcohol

LIQUOR (shot)
Absolut vodka: 70 calories, 0 carbs, 43% alcohol
Tanqueray gin: 115 calories, 0 carbs, 47.3% alcohol
Jim Beam bourbon: 100 calories, 0 carbs, 40% alcohol
Bacardi rum: 96 calories, 0 carbs, 40% alcohol
Jose Cuervo tequila: 97 calories, 0 carbs, 40% alcohol
Jagermeister: 103 calories, 11 carbs, 35% alcohol

    Love how my Guiness is more “nutritious” than Bud. However, it gets much worse by the time I add my shot of Chambord (almost gives the beer a chocolatey taste).

    While white spirits are the way to go (and I do drink them), I will NEVER give up my glass of bourbon relaxation.
