Want to go out for a night with the girls? Want a night cap with the hubby? Whatever you reason (do we really need a reason?!), here are some low point alcoholic drinks that will keep you on track with your Weight Watchers points and still allow you to have a good time. Remember, you can alway use your Weeklies if need be!

Low Point Alcoholic Drinks
Gin, Vodka, Whiskey, etc are going to (generally speaking) be 3 Points for 1.5 ounces. They can be considered light alcoholic drinks, in small doses. What you mix into your drinks is what will add the points. Using Crystal Light or other zero-calorie flavor options is best.
Shot of Rum + Diet Coke – 3 Points
Shot of Rum + Diet Root Beer – 3 Points
Rum + Orange Crush Single + Water – 3 Points
Skinny Margarita – 3 Points
Mikes Lite Hard Lemonade – 4 Points
Bloody Mary – 5 Points for 5 ounces
Stella Artois Cider – 5 Points for the bottle
Key Lime Clear Water + Gin – 3 Points
Jameson + Diet Ginger Ale – 3 Points
Tequila + Ice + Lime + Sprite Zero – 3 Points (get this low point margarita recipe – a regular one is 17 Points!)
Mimosa – 4 Points for 6 ounces
Blackberry Lime Mojito – 5 Points

Low Point Vodka Drinks
Most vodka is 3 Points for 1 1/2 fl. oz, but SkinnyGirl Vodka is 1 point, and Deep Eddy's vodka is 2 points for 1 ounce. When this question was asked in the Weight Watchers group, many noted they preferred Eddy's to SG. Taste both and choose for yourself… sometimes flavor is worth the extra point! Most flavored Vodkas scan as 4 points.
Some ideas for low point vodka drinks:
Vodka + Crystal Light
Vodka + Diet Soda
Vodka + Diet Juice (grapefruit, cranberry, orange)
Vodka + Lime Juice + Stevia
Vodka + Water + Lemon + Lime
Vodka + Grapefruit + Club Soda + Lime
Vodka + Sprite Zero + Lime
Vodka Tonic + Lime
Vodka + Lime + Mint + Diet Gingerale (Moscow Mule)
Vodka + Cucumber + Water
Social Lite Vodka Coolers are 2 points and they have many flavor options.
Low Point Beers
Light beers are 3 points while full flavor are going to run you 5 to 7 points. If you're really craving the full flavor beer, drink a regular beer to start, then follow up with light beers to save points. Want more? Check out my list of the most popular beers and the points 🙂
Low Point Wines
Red wine is typically 4 points per 5 ounce glass. Not all wines are created equal, nor are their point counts equal, though! There is a 3 point wine that has under 85 calories. Manechewitz red wine is 2 points for 4 ounces.
Weight Watchers Alcohol
You don't have to give up on Happy Hour just because you're doing Weight Watchers, but you want to be mindful of not only what you're adding to your drinks but what you're eating with your drinks. Always track every bite and sip!

Vodka info is a game changer!
I prefer any of the non-alcoholic beers. The beer taste difference between them and water is better than the difference between regular beer and non-alcoholic beer. It does not make you dizzi either and you can drink and drive. A game changer.
This is so helpful. Looking forward to be a part of the group.
Gave my email and it was typed wrong
Are zero sugar vodkas (ex. Smirnoff infusions) 0 points?
Smirnoff infusions are 3 points. The no sugar infusions do still have points.
Is deep eddy grapefruit vodka only 2 points as well?
yes according to the app Deep Eddy’s Red Grapefruit Vodka is 2 points for 1 ounce
Thank you for posting this information Mr. Smiley!
Great site- all the best to you !! Just wondering- would I get more of a buzz with 2 Truly Lemonades- or 3 oz. of vodka with diet soda? Asking for a friend -lol- not really 😉
When was this written? I just put in Captain Morgan rum into the app and it came back 0 points?
I don’t know what you did to get it to say 0. The app sometimes has mistakes in it. We are all human and make mistakes believe me I have made my fair share. 🙂 As of today, the points calculated on this post are correct. Thank you so much for reading our blog and continuing to support us we truly appreciate you. If you find out why it says 0 please let me know. Thank again.
