Low calorie alcohol is something we have not seen a lot of for the last decade but now with a vast amount to choose from we have fold the top 3 low calorie alcoholic drinks for you to try and enjoy. Low calorie alcohol is now available in beer, spirits, wine, prosecco and almost any other variation that you can think of. The good news is that top brands such as Budweiser, Brewdog and Koppaberg have introduced this in to their full range and new standalone low calorie brands such as Skinny have made it their mission to compete with the big boys on taste, price point, available discounts and calorie count.
Hard seltzers are the most on trend when it comes to low calorie alcoholic drinks due to them being made primarily from water. Smirnoff, White Claw and now Budweiser lead the charge and with just 72 calories per can you can see why they are most peoples top choice to drink this year.
Low Calorie Skinny Larger by Skinny Brands
Skinny Brands premium lager offers just 89 calories per 330ml bottle. Full of flavour, ALC 4% volume and just £1.20 a bottle this is the perfect choice when wanting a crisp every day lager but needing to be good whilst on a health kick. Having tried this beer I can tell you it tastes between a Budweiser and a Corona. Very easy to drink, not overly carbonated and if given it and told it was a high calorie beer we would have believed it.
