Low-Carb, Low Calorie Cocktails

Unlike beer and wine, some spirits like vodka, tequila and gin contain zero carbohydrate. The key is what you mix with. And remember, no-carb or fat-free doesn't mean no-calories.

Low-carb cocktails are: Bloody Mary, Gin & Diet Tonic, Vodka Diet Tonic, Gin Martini and Flavored Vodka Martinis (mixed with flavored vodkas and dry vermouth).
