Are you a health-conscious individual who also loves to indulge in an occasional night of whiskey tasting? Well, it's important to be mindful of the nutritional value of the drinks you pour -- especially when crafting mixed whiskey drinks.
In fact, the number of calories in your favorite alcohol may surprise you... Think you can take a guess at how many calories are in ONE shot of whiskey?
One shot of an average whiskey typically clocks in at approximately 100 calories depending on the type.
So, even ordering a couple simple whiskey drinks mixed with soda can often set you back at nearly 500 calories.
That being said, it's great to enjoy a drink to relax and unwind -- so the calorie count shouldn't always be top-of-mind. However, those watching their weight or with health ailments may want to take note and limit the refills.
