Someone already posted that alcohol has 7 calories per gram. Wine (which,
like any alcoholic beverage, has alcohol in it, but has other stuff as
well), is usually about 20 calories per ounce. Beer has only 12 calories per
ounce, but you tend to drink more at one time. (These numbers come from
HEALTH magazine.)

Stuff like vodka is much higher.

Just remember...the higher the alcohol content, the higher in calories.
