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

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!
