Low Carb Alcohol - Carb Counts of Beers and Wines


Low Carb Alcohol - Beer, Wine and Mixed Drinks

Is it okay to drink alcohol on a low carb diet? You will get some mixed answers on this question depending on who you ask. Atkins says No, Eades says Yes... My personal experience is that it's okay in moderation and only if you take care to drink small amounts of Low Carb Beers or very Dry Wines. Mixed Drinks are okay with sugar-free mixers like the Baja Bob's Margarita Mixes below.



These sugar free, low carb drink mixes are great for use in alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages. Sweetened with Splenda. Most of the drink mixes have zero calories and zero sugar. The average sugar-loaded margarita mix can run over 250 calories per serving! Available in 1 liter bottles as well as packets (each packet makes a half-gallon of delicious margarita mix) and single serving size.


Original Margarita Mix: This luscious lime-flavored Margarita Mix is the unbelievable beverage that started it all.

Crazy Caribe Pina Colada Mix: Made with real coconut cream, pineapple juice, and natural flavors. Only 4g of carbs per 4 oz. serving and that's because of the pineapple juice.

Triple Citrus Margarita Mix: Made with lots of Mexican Key Limes for an extreme citrus flavor.


Atkins Diet Products

Havana Cabana Mojito Mix: Just add your favorite rum and club soda to enjoy this minty, sparkling lime-flavored cocktail.

Sweet-n-Sour Drink Mix: An ideal drink mix for Whiskey Sours, Tom Collins, and for a refreshingly different tasting Margarita.

Mai Tai Mix: Ever wonder what Hawaii tastes like? Bob's Mai Tai mix is truly Maui-licious!...And by that we mean bursting with sweet pineapple-y goodness.

Martini Mix: Enjoy a fruity twist to your martinis.

Tropical Trouble Hurricane Mix: Has a distinctive cherry / passion fruit taste.

Mudslide Mix: Contains real cocoa and coffee powder.

The other big question is 'Which Beer or Wine has the lowest carbs?" As a simple rule of thumb, hard liquor has trace carbs, less than 1 gram per ounce. Dry red or white wine usually has 1 or 2 carbs per ounce. Sweeter wines have more. Light Beers can have anywhere from 2 to 8 carbs per can. Below are some comparison charts of the lower carb beers and wines currently on the market.
