Some Specific Details

  • 25 ml Scotch whisky (when it is scotch, it is ‘whisky’ and not ‘whiskey’) and 100 ml Coca-Cola would normally contain about 65 calories from whiskey and about 45 calories from the Coca-Cola, making it about 110 calories in total.
  • 35 ml of Scotch and 90 ml of Coca-Cola offer about 120 calories.
  • Jack Daniels, in itself, has a calorie content of approx. 58 calories, per 25ml. However, the calorie count can go up or down to a large extent, depending on the accompaniment. You can always go with water instead of coke, to cut down on calories. You can also try JD on the rocks. Nothing beats the taste of JD, served with a glass full of ice.
  • But, a Southern Comfort and diet coke drink will contain less than 80 calories for a 25 ml serving.
