Q: Cheers to ya, was wondering about low calorie liquors and drinks, Yes, I’m one of the millions on the Atkins diet and I need to keep my buzz up nightly. I hear scotch is a good one, but wow! $$. Any suggestions?
A: Vodka is very low in carbs as is red wine. Pretty much any clear spirits made from grain are going to be OK. Drinks that have had a lot of sugar added (e.g., liqueurs) are going to be higher in carbs.
