Vodka tonics are my go-to drinks when I am dieting. Lower in calorie, but it only takes 1 or 2 until I am feeling, ahem, happy - it takes several beers to get me there.

It depends on the size on some of those. Some margaritas (the big ones) can have up to 500 calories if you aren't careful. I usually stick with a vodka/diet soda mixer. It's pretty good and it's not too high in calories or carbs. Light beer is also a pretty good option...most of them are 100ish calories per can/bottle.

I've been thinking about moving away from the heavy cocktails and drinking wine instead, so this info is definitely helpful. Pass me some champagne!
