Let's go for a low carb drink. Today many people are looking for a low carbohydrate alternative to their regular libation. Fortunately there are many sugar-free counter-parts to your regular mixes. This will help the cocktail drinkers. Beer drinkers are sort of left with low carb beer, there are a few to choose from.

Sugar is really the big enemy in this war against carbohydrates. Let us start with the easiest remedy. Diet Soda is available to replace the regular sugary soda in any cocktail concoction. All the major brands carry a diet alternative, so for these cocktails we are set. and of course club soda is already sugar free.

 

Fruit juice is a big offender when it comes to sugar content, One trick is to use club soda and a small amount of juice.

Vodka, Gin, Rum, Tequila, Brandy, Whiskey. These spirits contain 0 carbs. However, spiced rum, and malibu rum and some other rums have sugar added to them, and lately some of the whiskies have added honey, Cinnamon, Black Cherry whiskey to their brands, which has added sweeteners.The infused vodka and rums are sugar free, only the flavor is infused into the spirit not the sugar, so you are safe with those.

Liqueurs are definitaly off limits. You can forget drinking Jagermeister, Southern Comfort, Kahlua, Amaretto, Cherry Brandy, Apple Pucker, Bailey's irish cream and the thousand other liqueurs, Schnapps, flavored Brandies, liqueurs will add to many carbs.
