How Many Calories Are in Your Favorite Shots?

Michael Dlle / EyeEm

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.
