Alcohol Cocktail Supplies Carb Chart

If you´re mixing up drinks or creating fantastic cocktails, here are the carbohydrate counts for your non-alcoholic ingredients, such as olives, cherries, pineapple juice, and more.

These counts are all net carbs. The default unit of measure is an 8oz serving.

apple juice, unsweetened - 29g
Coca Cola - 30g
cranberry juice - 36g
cucumber slice - 0g
diet soda - 0g
grenadine syrup (1 tbsp) - 13g
lemon juice (1oz) - 2.5g
lime juice (1oz) - 2.7g
maraschino cherry (1) - 2g
olive (1) - .5g
orange juice - 26g
pearl onion (1) - 0g
Pepsi Cola – 28g
pineapple juice - 34g

Tonic water comes in a number of carb levels - check your bottle to determine the carb count of the specific one you have chosen. Many people think because it says "water" that it has zero carbs - but that is usually not true.

Tips for Mixing Drinks
Many mixed drinks involve soda so probably the most important thing you can do is get a bunch of Splenda-sweetened sodas in all flavors for your house. Ginger Ale and Cola are two of the most commonly used flavors. That way you can include those in your cocktails without adding any sugar to the mix.

If you enjoy fruit juice cocktails, it might be time to train yourself to enjoy other types. Fruit juices are incredibly high in sugar and low in nutrients. Alternately, get the same flavors by using the alcohol equivalent. If you like the flavor of orange, look for Grand Marnier which is an orange flavored alcohol.
