Reports tells how many carbs and calories are in 26 best-selling alcoholic beverages

MONDAY, June 30 (HealthDay News) -- A punishing run in the summer sun deserves an ice cold beer, right?

And the just reward for a strenuous afternoon whipping your garden into postcard perfection -- how about a slightly chilled chardonnay?

To aid consumers, the federation developed a side-by-side comparison chart that shows the alcohol content, calories and carbohydrate content of the 26 best-selling alcohol products, spanning beer, wine and spirits. The chart details what's in a standard 12-ounce beer, a 5-ounce glass of wine and a 1.5-ounce serving of spirits. The chart is based on sales data from the Adams Beverage Group, and includes 13 brands of beers and malt liquors, five brands of wine, and eight types of liquor, including, gin, rum, tequila, vodka and whiskey.

The alcohol content per serving ranged from 0.42 fluid ounces to 0.70 fluid ounces, depending upon the specifi
