According to Drinkaware, a gin and tonic with 25ml of gin (with 37.5% ABV) has 97 calories. However, with such a range of different gins and tonics out there, all containing a variety of ingredients, the calories in a G&T will depend on the type of gin, as well as the type of tonic used.
Today, many have become more concerned about their health, and the food and drink they put into their bodies (and rightfully so!) – looking for the “healthiest” drinks with the fewest calories to help them with this.
However, drinking alcoholic beverages, such as ILoveGin’s favourite, expertly crafted gins, should always be considered as a treat to be indulged in sensibly.
While sadly, there’s no such thing as a healthy gin, or a healthy G&T for that matter, depending on the bottle you go for, it could be substantially lower in calories than other common drinks – including beer and wine.
Here, ILoveGin explores how many calories are in gins, tonics and more.
