LOWEST Calorie drinks

Hi Everybody:

I'm going to Vegas and I will be clubbing with my girlfriends.

I was wondering: what is the LOWEST calorie drink you all can think of? I'll be having several (No, not binge-drinking, just on vacation and I need to cut lose and forget about school, :) ) . I know about diet mixers and that's great, but what is the lowest calorie hard alcohol, by itself? Am I better off just drinking Amstel Light? I mean it is cheaper, and only 95 calories, but still, i hate that gross beer bloat.

Any ideas? Please include the number of calories in the drink. Also, if you know that it's not too expensive, note that, too.

Thanks everybody!

water has the lowest calories.

sorry, I know you were looking for an alcoholic drink answer, but I just had to say it. My advice would be to drink a lot of seltzer, with lime, lemon, shot of cranberry, whatever. This is the lowest cal way to go IMO. I would drink lots of seltzer, especially between drinks, and then have a regular drink of something that I liked (though probably not a cream based drink LOL). I just don't see the point in all that diet stuff. Besides, I love a buzz, but HATE being dehydrated or hung over...that would totally kill the fun Vegas time for me.

Stay away from any frozen drinks - none will have less than 500 cals, and plenty will be upwards of 1000 cals (any with coconut).

Light beer is usually the way to go for low-cal, but a shot of a clear liquor is around 100 cals, so if you have it with a diet mixer, then it's not much worse. A shot of clear liquor (not the sugar-filled flavored ones, like raspberry vodka or bacardi limon, though - just the plain kind), or light beer, or a wine spritzer (half wine, half seltzer) are your best bets.

There was an article on iVillage awhile ago of the lowest calorie beers - maybe check it out, some may surprise you, and you may like some better than others.

let the "youre an alcoholic" comments begin...

Second poster, I dont mean to start the angry riot that I know might noe occur, but not helpful at all. Like the OP, I like to drink...not everyday of course but once in awhile...and when I do, I want to get buzzed, drunk, whatever. We all know water is figure-friendliest...but hello, some of us are young and enjoying ourselves. Dont pass judgement, just answer the question as asked.

OP...shots vs. a mixed drink maybe? In all honesty, I dont know and am interested to see some REAL responses.

I'm the second poster, and I wasn't passing judgement. I was just giving my opinion. I even said that I knew my answer wasn't what the OP was looking for, but I gave my two cents anyway. I can do that in an open forum.

BTW, I'm young and like to drink too. And I enjoy myself a great deal with cocktails, wine, etc. But I have reached a point where I'd rather have one full on strong cocktail, without the diet mixer, instead of drinking twelve of something "lite," "diet," or watered down, just so I can feel like I'm able to drink more. I also eat real butter. Whatever.

you might like to try gin and soda with a squeeze of lemon, or scotch and soda.
