Sugar content of champagne?
Dry Champagne refers to the amount of sugar content, or sweetness, of the Champagne. The dry description can be misleading for sparkling wine. A still wine described as dry means the wine is not sweet. However, the opposite is true for Champagne which is labeled Dry for sweeter and Brut for less sweet.

Yes, you can really celebrate a toast with whatever drink you prefer. Some low-calorie, low-sugar alternatives include diet lemonade or Brute champagne. Brut champagne only has about 65 calories per glass as compared to the average 91 calories. Alternatively (and easier), you can just try not to drink too much of the champagne. Even non-alcoholic champagne contains quite a lot of sugar.
