Is a vodka martini, no vermouth, preferable to beer and wine for a prediabetic?

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

Beer can be more carb-laden. One ounce of liquor, depending on the proof, has about the same amount of alcohol as 5 ounces of wine. While liquor is often carb-free, mixers like soda and juice can send blood sugar levels through the roof. To prevent a spike, mix your liquor with a calorie-free drink like water or seltzer. The most important thing is moderation.
