Looking forward to that after-work cocktail or post dinner drink? Well, you may want to know how many calories are in brandy before pouring your glass. In one ounce of 86-proof brandy there are about 70 calories.
If you drink four ounces of brandy on the rocks, you will have consumed 280 calories. Now, that may be a lot of alcohol, but many brandy drinkers consume between 2 and 4 ounces at one sitting.
If you are trying to cut back on calories, you may want to avoid the excess number of ounces. Stick to drinking one ounce instead of three. While one ounce of brandy contains a lot less calories than a glass of white wine or five-ounce cocktail, the calories can add up when you drink more than an ounce. Also, if you are trying to cut back on calories but still want to enjoy your brandy, remember to drink the non-flavored varieties.
Although blackberry brandy is beginning to be a popular alcoholic drink, it does contain more calories than its plain counterpart. In a one-ounce serving of blackberry brandy there are just over 100 calories. The increased number of calories comes from the flavored liqueur and added sugar found in the blackberries.
Now that you know how many calories are in brandy and flavored brandies, you can make the decision on how much to drink.
