Liquor Is The Best Low Carb Alcohol Choice:

Many types of liquor do not have any counted carbs at all. Now of course if you are adding sugar, soda, fruit juice, or anything else sweet, then you are adding carbs. Diet Soda should be your number one choice. My favorite is Diet Sun Drop! The liquor alcohol carb counts given have had the fiber removed. All amounts here are for a 1oz shot.

Armagnac – 0g

Bourbon – 0g

Brandy – 0g

Cognac – 0g

Gin – 0g

Rum – 0g

Scotch – 0g

Tequila – 0g

Vodka – 0g

Whiskey – 0g

Wine Is Your Second Low-Carb Alcohol Choice:

How many carbs are in wine? Most wines have between 2g – 5g carbs per 4oz serving. If you pour a BIG glass, then you’ll have more carbs. The sweeter the wine is the higher the carb count will be.
