Coconut Rum is a popular form of great tasting rum used for a variety of popular alcoholic drinks. But just how many calories are in coconut rum?
Most brands are pretty similar in calorie content and vary only slightly. One, one ounce shot of coconut rum has between 50 and 60 calories in it. There is actually no standard size for a shot so your drink may have more rum in it than that. A shot is somewhere between 1 and 1.5 ounces. a 1.5 ounce shot of rum has 75 and 90 calories in it, which can really add up fast if you have more than one cocktail.
And this doesn’t even include the other parts of the drink that can include soda, syrups and other high calorie components. It’s not difficult to polish off two coconut rum drinks with soda and some kind of syrup added in it. Just one cocktail of this nature can have upwards of 275 calories. Have two of these drinks and you’ve just consumed over 500 calories! And that doesn’t include your meal.
No wonder weight loss experts tell dieters to stay away from alcoholic drinks. If you want to keep the calories to a minimum then try making a coconut rum and diet soda drink. You can easily enjoy this tasty cocktail drink and keep the calories to a minimum. Products like diet Coke, Coke Zero and other diet drinks have either one or zero calories.
