The Hard Stuff
The calories in vodka depend on the proof, which is twice the percentage of alcohol. 90 proof vodka contains 45 per cent alcohol while 100 proof contains 50 per cent alcohol. The higher the proof, the higher the calories. Here's the statistics:
Double shot 80 proof contains 97 calories
Double shot 90 proof contains 110 calories
Double shot 100 proof contains 124 calories
Plan your Cocktail

While planning a drink the choice of mixer is crucial to the final calorie count of the drink
Adding colas as mixers in the drink increases the calorie count. A good substitute would be natural juices. Extra garnish combined into the drink adds flavor and colour to the drink while keeping the calorie content low.

A glass Vodka Tonic contains around 200 calories. But the use of Diet Tonic instead can save around 100 calories. Vodka Cranberry is a poolside favorite. Cranberry Juice is high in sugars, thus it pushes up the calorie count to over 250 per drink. A Vodka Diet Cranberry contains only 140 calories. Tomato Juice also has less sugar content, and therefore has fewer calories and hence is a good choice of mixer.

There are always ways to lower the calories if the drink is made at home. Vodka Lemonade Crush is a refreshing drink. Commercial lemonade, is basically fizzy sugar water, is very high in calories. Homemade lemonade can be used instead. It tastes the same and is lighter on the calories.

Thus a healthy combination and a proper limit on the number drinks of vodka can help in striking a fine balance in terms of calories.

Go enjoy your drink!!
