Okay after quarantine ends my friends and I are really looking forward to getting back to the bars since we're all 21 and losing a lot of our first year of bar-hopping and such. Basically since I'm new to bars and even drinking in general, what are y'all's favorite low-calorie drink orders?

Vodka Redbull (sugar free to stay lowcal) or tequila shots. If I don't feel like blacking out, then vodka lemonade

At the club I only get shots either vodka or tequila for safety but if its a sit down bar I usually get a diet redbull vodka or a cosmo with olives.

vodka diet-coke.


People always question it for some reason, but like it's not even that much of an out-there drink?? You don't NEED to mix dark liquor with dark drinks...plus it's the lowest calorie option that tastes the best imo. (96 calories per shot for 40% alcohol or 80 proof vodka)

Vodka cranberry, by extension I love cosmopolitans. As long as you stick to hard liquor you'll be fine. If I want wine I will budget it into my calories. If you're restricting, don't try to drink as much as your friends who aren't. You'll die lol

vodka diet-coke.


Even when I'm not restricting super hard, I love this drink. I just don't see why I would want to put like 500 calories into some mixed drink even on days where my brain isn't screaming at me. Vodka Diet Coke slaps and get's the job done

I love just doing shots tbh - it's the same alcohol for less liquid volume and less cals. If you're just partying with friends and are good at knowing your limits, this is what I would recommend. Sometimes if it's a fancier place I'll get an old fashioned, because its just some whiskey on ice with a tsp of sugar and a dash of bitters (I have a whole cabinet with bartending stuff at home so I know the actual recipes/how to make a lot of cocktails). Another good fancy option is a martini - just gin with a twist of lime or a couple olives. I've sort of trained myself to like cocktails that are mostly just alcohol and not a lot of other stuff. I didn't like them much at first, but now I do and it saves me a lot of strange looks since I can order a "normal" drink and most of my friends don't even realize I'm choosing a lower cal option.

i like either vodka soda with lime, tequila shots, gin and tonic or jack and coke. I think that covers all the bases lmao.

ok its not a bar drink but monster zero ultra (the white one) with vodka has become my holy grail it masks like an insane amount of liquor with just a little bit of monster and the whole can is only 10 cals

there's no room in this hell, there's no room in the next.
