Does Gin Have Carbs?
 
My wife is doing no/low carbs. We are going to a wedding this weekend and she would like to be able to partake a bit. I know next to nothing about what has carbs and what does not so I couldn't answer her question, but I was wondering...

Does gine have carbs?

Happily, gin does not have carbs. The tonic water does. 4 fl. oz. has just under 11 grams.

Thanks Andy!

Well that will probably rule out her drinking it them. I would say she could be the designated driver, but the wedding is at the hotel where we are staying so no need for a car.

Actually, it just rules out the tonic water. She could drink the gin on the rocks!:angel: :angel:

Also, the bar could have diet tonic water.

Vodka also has no carbs, right?

Even better. Thanks Jenny!

The USDA nutrition database lists all boozes (whiskey, gin, rum, vodka) as being carb-less.

Oh wow I never would have guessed rum was carb free. That is great news. She can do run and diet coke. Thanks Andy!

I got that info from the USDA's Nutrient Database. You can download it and look up all the info on a food item you will ever need.
