if a can of coke has 127cal with like 35g of carbs (sugar), add your spirit to that.. then compare it to a can of beer, that has something like 147cal n 13g carbs.. why is beer stereotyped as being the choice of alchol that makes u 'all pudgy' and not spirits with softdrink?

I don't think beer is being compared to alcoholic beverages in that belief, it's being compared to other beverages. When people have a soft drink, they may have 1 can, sometimes 2 in a sitting. When they go out and drink beer, they may have anywhere from 3, 4, 5, ...15. It's more the tendancy while drinking to drink a high volume rather than the drink itself. I like my rum or vanilla stoli with diet coke anyways...

When you make a mixed frink you do not put a whole can in. 12 ounce can soda mix 12-16 ounces of alcohol. That set you for the night.
Comparing to six pack, 6 ounce alcohol and 6 ounce pop. Estimating 75 cals pop + 480 cals al = 555. 6 pack of lite about 650 regualr beer more.
Drink diet pop and you willbe ahead. If your drinking scoth, drinki it on the to rocks and let the ice melt. Alot of people claim they have thess hangover drink straigh liquor then mixing with pop. The sugar, carbs, ??
If your only having 6 drinks not a big deal, once in awhile.
Tanquerray and tonic or grapefuit-good, plus more %.

Johnny walker in a can? what is a premixed mix drink? Cola and Walker? Other thing to look at then is %. If one is stroner might only drink 5.
Also you really can't compare beer and mixs in cans. Usually not as strong as what you make. I am guessing that Walker in the can is not much more then beer. If that is the case then you can compare them to each other.

Here I've seen Beam and JD come mixed never tried it though. Like my drinks strong.

Tomato juice very low actually, vodka not bad. Depends how big the salad bar is on the side. Less carbs then fruit juice.

My alcoholic advice, is drink what ya want. If you start drinking regularly then you need to put more though into it.

Vodka and Diet Pepsi Lemon is Fabtastic :drooling:


Hell who needs mixers...nothing beats pure grain alcohol poured into a funnel crammed directly into your side and through your liver.


That'll teach that back-talking, punk @$$, liver of mine.

I had a friend who had an alchoholic uncle and his uncle's doctor told him that if he had to drink that he should drink achohol that was clear like vodka cause somehow it is eisier for the liver to filter and whatnot.

Smirnoff maks 100 proof vodka and the chicks seem to dig it.

Just curious my ass.
Actually Vodka has less contigers then most alcohol, brandy, whiskey,. Gins not bad either. Congeners is the toxin in alcohol. Less hangovers from vodka too.
