How many calories in your Martini?

Apple Martinis and Cosmos

According to, a basic martini-sized glass--usually 3 to 4 oz.--of an apple martini is 235 calories. A cosmopolitan is 213 calories.

Vodka and Gin Served Straight Up
According to, a vodka martini straight up has 200 calories. A vodka martini with 1 oz. of olives is roughly 250 calories. A gin martini has 125 calories; if you add 1 oz. of olives it brings the gin martini to 175 calories.

Chocolate and French Cocktails
A chocolate martini can contain as many as 430 calories for a 3- to 4-oz. glass. If the drink is made without cream, this will decrease the caloric content. French martinis are made with vodka, chambord and pineapple juice, and have about 150 calories.

If Bourbon Suits You
A bourbon Manhattan, which is made with bourbon and a dash of sweet vermouth, has about 130 calories. If garnished with maraschino cherries, you can expect to add about 10 to 20 calories.

What about a Mojito? *my favorite non-martini
A mojito contains roughly 150 calories. If the bartender makes the cocktail with strawberries or blueberries, you can expect to add 30 to 50 calories, making it a 180- to 200-calorie drink.
