NO Dark rum is often aged longer, but not necessarily and often has a caramel coloring added. The calories in it are based on the alcohol content. Higher proof = more alcohol = more calories, but the color really has nothing to do with it. Bottom line - Enjoy the one you prefer the most. And stay away from sugary mixers, they add the most to your calorie count.
It depends on the rum's alcohol content and residual sugar content. Alcohol has a calorie count of 153.2 calories per ounce. It is a carbohydrate, or sugar. A 40 proof rum has 31 calories from alcohol, a 100 proof rum has 76 calories from alcohol. Additional sugars may also be present in some rums which can increase the calories per ounce upwards of 150.
a fifth contains 25.6 ounces. 80 proof rum is 64 calories per ounce bringing the total calories to 1,638.4 for the whole fifth. divied by 15 (the number of shots you can get from a fifth) equals 109.22 calories per shot of 80 proof rum. mix with 20 ounce calorie free diet cola = a 100 calorie diet beverage. dancing for 10-15 minutes will burn 100 calories bringing you to 0 calories :) Enjoy!!!!
