Good news if you are counting calories – Prosecco is a pretty good alcoholic option!
The relatively low number of calories in Prosecco make it one of the more diet-friendly alcoholic drinks. One glass of Prosecco contains around 80 calories, making it much less calorific than a large glass of red, or a vodka and coke, which come in at 220 and 120 calories (ish – depending on size) respectively. The lower calories in Prosecco are partly due to its low alcohol content when compared with other wines – this makes it a good choice for dieters and a perfect lunchtime drink. If you are watching your weight, opt for a Brut Prosecco – this type of Prosecco has a lower sugar content and thus a lower calorie-count. Just don’t drink too much!
