Trick question.

Each gram of alcohol has seven kCals in it so the stronger the drink, the higher the calories. You could drink straight grain alcohol and still get a whack of calories. Also, it is metabolized very similarly to fat, so as far as nutrition goes, figure it's nothing but a mouthful of fat.

^^^ That said, calorie count will climb as mixers are added. So, for a strong drink and to keep the calorie count down, stick to Martinis, Sours and ditch the cocktails with sugar, syrup, creams, etc...

Here's a table that may be useful

The one you drink until you puke.

Here's the problem. Ethanol is ~ 7.1 calories/gram. Carbohydrates and proteins are ~ 4 calories/gram. Since Piobaire beat me to it, I will add something. Typical juice runs 37-54g of carbohydrates per 12oz. Typical soda is 40g of carbohydrates per 12oz.

Lowest calorie drunk: Shots of straight alcohol, no chaser. Or same alcohol mixed with diet sodas.
Bottom line: alcohol isn't good for you or your diet, no matter how you slice it.
