Alcohol Carb Chart - Atkins


If you enjoy a cocktail before dinner, or a glass of whiskey by the fire, you'll be happy to know that most alcohols are zero carb! This list is for straight alcohols, like gin, vodka, whiskey, and so on.

 Alcohol Carb Chart - Atkins I include links to common other alcoholic drinks like beer so people who end up here by accident can find where they need to be.

The carb counts given here are effective carb counts, with the fiber removed. All amounts here are for a 1oz shot, except as indicated.

Absinthe - 0g
Armagnac - 0g
Beer (12oz) - 12.5g
Bourbon - 0g
Brandy - 0g
Cachaca - 0g
Cognac - 0g
Gin - 0g
Mezcal - 0g
Rum - 0g
Scotch - 0g
Tequila - 0g
Vermouth, Dry - 1.4g
Vermouth, Sweet - 4.5g
Vodka - 0g
Whiskey - 0g
Wine, Red (5 oz) - 3.5g
Wine, White (5 oz) - 3g

Note that there are of course mixed drinks that involve fruit juices, sugars, and other sweet concoctions. If you start mixing in sodas or juices for a cocktail, you're racking up the carbs very quickly. Use a diet soda whenever possible!

If you're looking for blended alcohols like Kahlua, Bailey's, and other concoctions, check out the Cocktail Liqueur Carb Chart.

Remember that alcohol is still a fuel. Alcohol provides calories to your body and is one of the four types of substances that your body can metabolize into fat, along with carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.

So alcohol is NOT a magical "no weight gain" drink. If you drink more than 1-2 drinks a day, it will have a serious impact on your health and your ability to lose weight. In essence your body will burn up the alcohol first for its energy needs, and then if you have other food digesting in your system as well, that other food is now "left over energy" and will get stored as fat. So the alcohol impedes your body's normal energy burning system.
