Most hard liquors such as vodka, rum, gin and whiskey are distilled and have zero carbs. (The carbs in these low carb mixed drinks come from the fruit juice.) You can enjoy a rum and Coke, or a gin and tonic. Just remember to use diet sodas and tonic waters as mixers, and remember liquor may be carb free, but it's NOT calorie free. An ounce of hard liquor is about 100 calories.
