Admit it, your “creative” New Year’s resolution is actually pretty cliche and involves losing some lbs before spring time comes along.

Thank God!
TY KU’s low calorie cocktails are the perfect alternative to high sugar and fattening drinks of the season like egg nog and Irish coffee. With only 72 calories per serving, you can stay on track with your daily calorie intake that will help you reach your goal weight for 2010.
TY KU Premium Liqueur is created with Soju, an Asian vodka that acts as a flavor catalyst.

Alcohol Calorie Facts
How many extra calories are you consuming on alcohol?
“The number of calories in mixed drinks depends on several things, including the amount and proof of the alcohol; the mixers; and the size of the drink.”
“It’s the mixers, syrups, and sodas that really get people into calorie trouble, because most drinks start with 1.5 ounces of distilled spirits that only have around 96 calories, but mixologists can easily turn that into a drink with hundreds of calories,” says Carolyn O’Neil, MS, RD, co-author of The Dish on Eating Healthy and Being Fabulous.
The higher the alcohol content, the higher the calories. Check out the proof per calories:
- 80-proof vodka (40% alcohol; the most common type) has 64 calories per 1oz
- 86-proof vodka (43% alcohol) has 70 calories/1 oz
- 90-proof vodka (45% alcohol) has 73 calories/1 oz
- 100-proof vodka (50% alcohol) has 82 calories/1 oz
