Your Favorite Alcoholic Drinks Ranked by Calorie Count

As someone who battles with IR on a daily basis, I can attest to the damage of poorly made sugary cocktails. When concocted correctly with a splash of sophistication these eleven drinks can typically all behave under 200 calories a standard glass (approx.4-5oz) or even a 12 oz. beer bottle. Meaning, you should be able to enjoy yourself without any self-loathing on Monday. I have also provided a link at the bottom for my top 5 major tips for ordering drinks with your figure and health in mind! Please feel free to share any tips or tricks that you use when cutting back and letting loose…without having to actually loosen your pants too.
