Have you ever wondered which is healthier, hard liquor or a beer? Well both need to be consumed in moderation, in fact all alcoholic beverages do.
If you’re counting calories, you may want to opt for that shot of vodka, which will have less calories than a pint of beer. The problem with hard liquor comes in when you combine it with sugary mixers. These are calorie laden and some are as high in calories as a meal.
Hard liquor is also carb and protein free while beer contains some carbs and a small amount of protein.
While you probably aren’t drinking either for your health, beer does have a small amount of B vitamins, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and selenium as compared to hard liquor.
