If you are stuck and can’t seem to shift those last couple of pounds, it’s important to address your drinking habits but, similarly to food, you need to look at portion control with your alcoholic beverages.

This is why, rather than counting calories, you need to look at drinking in moderation.
So if you are looking for a drink that provides the same merriment as your favorites, you may potentially want to look for something with a slightly higher alcohol content or go for something that is more quality over quantity. For example, many people buy tequila online because they’re going for the quality of the spirits rather than the sheer amount that they can guzzle. And this is something that we all need to think about, that “quality vs quantity” debate. If you struggle to maintain portion control with regards to your drinks, investing in a higher quality drink may cost a bit more, but it’s a great way to keep your portions under control.
