With Halloween coming up, and the fact that I'm throwing a party...what are some low cal alcoholic drinks...if any?

Hope everyone is having a thintastic day! :D


Rum and Diet Coke. Same as the rum and Coke, but with far less calories. Some people say that can't really taste a major difference, but there are other individuals who don't like the diet coke. If you can get used to this, however, then a normal rum and diet coke clocks in at a feather weight 110 calories, making it one of the best low calorie alcoholic mixed drinks.

Vodka Diet Cranberry. The Vodka and Cranberry is a very popular cocktail, but juice can pack the calories and sugar on. Switch it out with a cranberry flavored crystal lite or equivalent, and the calories stay off, making this drink a winner at 140 calories.

Cosmopolitan. The Cosmopolitan is an excellent low calorie alcoholic drink that can be made easily. A Cosmopolitan is four parts vodka, two parts triple sec, two parts cranberry juice (use crystal lite or another 0 calorie substitute if possible), and one part lime juice for a tasty low calorie treat.

Mojito. This low calorie alcoholic drink is making a popular comeback, and why not? A properly made Mojito has only 160 calories and 15 grams of sugar, and it is a tasty treat. To make a Mojito you need 3 fresh mint sprigs, two teaspoons of sugar, three tablespoons of fresh lime juice, 1.5 oz of light rum, and club soda. In a tall thin glass crush the mint with a fork to coat the inside. Add the sugar and lime juice first, stir thoroughly. Top it with ice and then add the rum and top it off with cold club soda, then add a lime slice and the remaining mint and you're done.

Bloody Mary. The classic Bloody Mary is only 150 calories and 10 grams of sugar, making this popular classic one of the most popular choices among low calorie mixed drinks. A classic Bloody Mary only remains a good choice, though, if the alcohol content is normal and not inflated or "strong" the way many bartenders like to make it.
thank you so much, this was VERY helpfull!
