Which are the lowest-carb libations? For people with diabetes, drinking alcohol can be a tricky exercise. Alcohol itself causes blood glucose to drop, but the things people mix with their spirits have widely-varying amounts of carbs. It’s hard to know where your blood glucose levels will end up.

You might be surprised by the carb counts of common cocktails.

Note: Please talk to your health care provider about whether or not drinking alcohol is safe and healthy for you.
