How many calories are in a glass of wine? How many ounces are in a typical serving? The answers depend upon the wine, which person or agency you ask and who is doing the pouring.
Some authorities suggest a wine serving size is 4 ounces. Others say 5 ounces. The standard size bottle of wine is 750ml or approximately 25.36 ounces. If we approximate 4 servings in a bottle, a serving size is a little over 5-1/2 ounces. If the standard serving size is 4 ounces then there are 6-1/3 servings of wine per standard 750ml bottle. So approximating the number of calories in a serving of wine can never truly be standard.
It makes more sense to know how many calories per ounce in wine rather than in an entire glass of wine. If you know how many ounces of wine you pour into your typical glass any given evening, the handy infographic wine calorie charts below will help you calculate how many calories are in your glass of wine.
White Wine Calories
White wines typically contain about 22 to 25 calories per ounce. Exceptions to the rule are late harvest white wines which contain anywhere from 33 to 45 calories per ounce.
Red Wine Calories
Red wines typically contain about 22 to 26 calories per ounce. Exceptions to the rule are dessert wines and sweet vermouths which contain about 47 calories per ounce.
These calories per ounce are averages since exact numbers will vary slightly by brand. These numbers were sourced from the United States Department of Agriculture. Their fact sheets list wine serving sizes in 5-ounce increments.
You’ve all known I love to shake things up as The Intoxicologist. This time I’m shaking things up from bar to bedroom by pairing cocktails with sexy stories and vignette photography.
Cocktails with a Tryst: An Affair with Mixology and Seduction
Cocktails with a Tryst: An Affair with Mixology and Seduction invites adventurous lovers to share steamy sexual fantasies and thirst quenching drinks. Sensual encounters are the indulgent quickies many fantasize about. Erotic adventures stimulate desire, allowing passion to smolder throughout the busy day.
Let’s face it, we’re all busy whether it is with frustrating commutes, demanding work days, tedious to-do lists or running after toddlers. At the end of the day we’re tired. Romance let alone jaw dropping, peel the paint off the wall sex rarely makes the top of the to-do list. Opening a bottle of wine or popping the top off a beer and plopping into a recliner are more likely to happen.
Stir your desire.
Share the stories. Quench your thirst.
Cocktails with a Tryst: An Affair with Mixology and Seduction is a multi-genre erotic stories and cocktails book. It mixes the best of my creative talents; cocktail knowledge, photography, and creative writing. The book invites readers to stir their desire and quench their thirst while reading alone or while sharing with someone special.
We’ve all heard the saying, sharing is caring. This time sharing is gratifying. You can read one indulgent short story in Cocktails with a Tryst: An Affair with Mixology and Seduction in the time it takes to catch up on social media. Would you rather “like” all the adorable babies, prom photos and cute puppies, or allow desire to simmer all day and share it with a lover for an evening of passion? I vote for the desire thing, wrapped up with a silk bow and blindfold.
After things heat up, Cocktails with a Tryst is the only book you need to cool down and quench your thirst. The book pairs 25 original cocktail recipes with the 12 erotic stories. Two standard syrup recipes are included. All the recipes use easy to find ingredients and have simple step-by-step instructions. The recipes include full color photos of every drink with brief description of the drink’s flavor profile. Each short story includes a mood setting black-and-white vignette photo.
The objective of Cocktails with a Tryst: Spark your desire early, frequently and carry it with you all day. And then share it!
Do you know what I love about Autumn? Halloween! I am not a huge fan of scaring myself silly, so no haunted houses and clown horror movies for me. But I do love decorating for Halloween and throwing a big Halloween party. It’s just super fun. I’m also all about planning ahead.
