Liquior, unlike beer, is only empty calories. Beer is "a meal" in a can. Starches/carbs, nutrients, calories, vitamans...all that jazz.

That is why breakfast beer is good...fizzy oats
Otherwise known as liquid bread. Grains, sugar, water and yeast.

if what I "know" (or believe, I should say) is correct...then you're pretty wrong

Nothing like a beer breakfast after a hard night's drinking. Ahh the days of college.

What nobody has mentiond yet (I think), is that it is often what you mix with the vodka that adds calories. I drink mine with soda water and a lime, it's lovely and the only calories come from the vodka. Add cranberry or other juices, and you're easily adding on 100+ calories a drink!

lemonade

I just started adding to my lemonade. I drink so much lemonade during the summer that I wondered about the vodka. Then Oprah had drink w/lemonade and vodka so she much like it too. I really do like it but worry that I have to limit everything i enjoy. Thank you all for information about calories. One thing we don't want to have too many of is calories. Thank you all.

Sky Vodka is suppose to have less calories than the regular one. Try it with unsweetened cranberry juice. Of course, anything in excess WILL be fattening.

Like pure fat, all pure alcohol has the same amount of calories.

Lower proof vodkas will have fewer calories. Maybe Sky is lower proof.

Same here, ITK. I can't drink it straight, so I mix it with (Sprite) Zero. I don't know if Zero is really less fattening though. The lemonade sounds good. Saw a 2 litre light lemonade, so I'm putting it on the shopping list to give it a try, since it's also been very hot here. Thanks for the idea.
