How Many Calories Are in Your Favourite Cocktails?

June 03, 2015 3 min read

The sun is out, it's patio season and drinks are ready to be poured. So - just how much damage are your favourite alcoholic beverages doing to your diet?

White Wine

One of the most diet friendly, white wine has 120 calories, 0 grams carbs, 0 grams protein and 0 grams fat.

Red Wine

In one serving of red wine (roughly five ounces), there are 102 calories, 5 grams carbs, 0 grams fat and 0 grams protein.

Moscato

One glass of moscato contains 160 calories, 20 grams carbs (17 grams sugar), 0 grams protein and 0 grams fat.  

Light Beer

On average, contains 102 calories, 5 grams carbs, 0 fat, 0 protein

Pale Ale Beer

One 12 oz bottle, on average, contains 175 calories, 14.1 grams carbs, 1.6 grams protein and 0 grams fat.

Lager

On average, a bottle of lager contains 128 calories, 10 grams carbs and 1.4 grams protein.

Wheat Beer

On average, wheat beer contains 165 calories, 16 grams carbs and 2 grams protein.

Stout Beer

A pint of Guinness beer contains 170 calories, 6 grams carbs, 0 grams protein and 0 grams fat.

Hard Cider

On average, hard cider contains 210 calories, 30 grams carbs (24 grams sugar), 0 grams protein, and 0 grams fat. That sugar count is pretty high - but it can be naturally from fruits. Make sure to check the labels for artificial sweeteners.  

Cosmopolitan

One martini-glass-sized Cosmo (about a 1/2 cup) contains 100 calories, 23.9 grams carbs (with 22 g sugar!), 0.5 grams protein and 0 grams fat. Triple sec—a syrup made from pure sugar—and the cranberry juice are responsible both for that delicious flavor as well as the high sugar count

Mojito

One serving of a classic mojito contains 242 calories, 40 grams carbs (37 grams sugar), 0 grams protein, and 0 grams fat.

Martini

One martini contains 70 calories, 17 grams carbs (17 grams sugar), 0 grams protein, 0 grams fat. This one tops the low-cal list thanks to being just vermouth and gin with no extra mixes, flavorings, or extras. (Although you can double that if you eat the olive garnish!)

Margarita

A 12 oz regular margarita, made with a mixer, on the rocks contains 174 calories, 19 grams carbs (17 grams sugar), 0 grams protein, 0 grams fat.

Bourbon Old Fashioned

An four-ounce bourbon Old Fashioned contains 100 calories, 0 grams carbs (15 grams sugar), 0 grams protein, 0 grams fat

Long Island Iced Tea

One 15-ounce serving contains a whopping 454 calories, 62 grams carbs (61 grams sugar), 0 grams protein and 0 grams fat. If those calories surprise you based on how healthy you know tea to be, consider this: All the vodka, gin, rum and tequila add up empty calories, but the triple sec and cola drown this drink in a sugary syrup. And there's not even any real tea!

Pina Colada

One eight-ounce pina colada contains 300 calories, 50 grams carbs (43 grams sugar), 0 grams protein and 0 grams fat. The pineapple-coconut mixer that gives it that characteristic beach flavor is also what jacks up the calorie count. By making your own with light pineapple juice and real coconut cream, you can cut this number in half.

Moscow Mule

A six-ounce Moscow Mule contains 120 calories, 15 grams carbs (13 grams sugar), 0 grams protein, and 0 grams fat.  

Vodka Cranberry

One 1.5-ounce vodka cranberry contains just 95 calories, 2 grams carbs (0 from sugar), and 0 grams protein.

Gin and Tonic

One six-ounce gin and tonic contains 143 calories, 14 grams carbs (13 grams sugar), 0 grams protein and 0 grams fat. Want to cut down that sugar count? Opt for a gin and soda water—tonic has as much sugar as a soda!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
