Because booze bottles don’t come with nutrition facts it’s easy to avoid thinking about the calorie count. But a Long Island Iced Tea has more calories than a McDonald’s cheeseburger. And it’s not just cocktails that pack in the calories, it’s shots too. Just because they’re small and thrown back in a matter of seconds doesn’t mean they don’t count. A few rounds can start to add up in a hurry.
Here are the number of calories in the most popular shots:
Straight Vodka - 96 calories
Kamikaze (vodka, triple sec, lime juice) - 99 calories
Oyster Shooter (vodka, lemon juice, Old Bay, hot sauce, oyster) - 115 calories
Screaming Orgasm (vodka, amaretto, coffee liqueur, Irish cream) - 83 calories
