And those who drank liquor were more likely to gain weight than those who preferred wine. Even though a serving of wine has about the same number of calories as a serving of liquor. The reason? Because most people drink hard liquor with mixers and flavored syrups – which are packed with sugar and calories. And that can turn a 100-calorie shot into a 500-plus calorie margarita or mai-tai.
