Do you like to drink but you don’t like those empty calories? Do you want to enjoy yourself during happy hour without the worry of putting on excess pounds? What drinks will get you drunk the fastest, while providing the fewest number of calories? All these questions can be answered at the The Efficient Drinker.
I came across the web site the other day and it will change the way I order drinks at the bar. The site has created an efficiency ratio to determine which beers will achieve the desired result of alcohol (getting drunk), while providing the fewest number of calories.
**For those with alcohol problems, check out Arizona alcoholism resources. **
When searching through the results, I realized the beers I have been drinking at bars were some the most “inefficient” beers around. On the other hand, these are also some of the tastier beers. Some of the worst beers available are also the most efficient. (Check out the calories of each beer here)
For example, I usually enjoy a few Yuengling’s (63.2% efficiency) or Samuel Adams (55.9%) at the bar, yet these rank near the bottom of the list. Meanwhile, crap beers like Natural Light (85.8%) and Michelob Ultra (85.8%) are near the top.
So all you college kids out there, you can now pound a 30-pack of Natty Ice guilt-free. Now I’m not about to drink Natural Ice—ever, but I might go for something in between, such as a Miller Lite, which has a high efficiency rating, but doesn’t taste like piss.
Beer not your thing? The site also breaks down the efficiency of mixed drinks. For example, all you girls out there who have been sipping on Cranberry and Vodka’s might wonder why you’ve been packing on the pounds lately. According to the site, Cranberry and Vodka is one of the worst drinks a person can have, coming in at just 55% on the efficiency scale. A typical Cranberry and Vodka drink can have 234 calories in an 8 oz. drink!
Meanwhile, hard liquor and wine provide near 100 percent efficiency, meaning all of its calories are from alcohol. So if you’re looking to get drunk without getting fat, than this is the way to go.
Be sure to check out the site and see where your favorite drink ranks.
