A traditional Long Island iced tea (shots of vodka, tequila, rum, gin, and triple sec combined with sour mix and cola) contains 650 to 750 calories.
The recipe I'm referring to is the one many bars in the United States offer -- four jiggers of hard liquor, half a jigger of triple sec, half a cup of sour mix (pure sugar) and another half cup of cola.
Not surprisingly, these are served in very tall glasses.
Granted, some establishments offer smaller versions of this drink, but even then you're looking at roughly 500 calories.
It's always a good idea to stick to a few low-calorie alcoholic beverages since alcohol lowers blood glucose levels, consequently triggering hunger.
As you might guess, the more you drink, the hungrier you get. Which explains why some people can feasibly eat an entire bag of chips after a night at the bar.
