What liquor has pork product in it?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Usually, liquor would not have pork in it. Liquor is usually made from plants, like grains or fruits. Ingredients like barley, corn, rye, grapes, or apples are common. The method of making liquor also removes impurities, so the ultimate product doesn't usually have any meat or animal stuff.

Keep in mind that some flavored spirits might have different substances for taste. If you're worried about dietary restrictions, it is a good idea to test the label or ask the maker. But regular spirits like vodka, whiskey, gin, and rum are generally plant-based and do not have pork in them. Always look at the label or get in touch with the maker if you are specific about what you eat.

Is wine stronger then tequila?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The strength of wine and tequila is typically measured by their alcohol content, which is expressed as a percentage of alcohol by volume (ABV). In general, tequila has a higher alcohol content than wine.

Wine: The alcohol content of wine can vary, but it typically ranges from 9% to 16% ABV. Some dessert wines or fortified wines may have higher alcohol content, but they are still generally lower than most spirits.

Tequila: Tequila is a distilled spirit, and its alcohol content is usually higher than that of wine. Most tequilas have an alcohol content ranging from 38% to 50% ABV. However, some may be even higher.

So, in terms of alcohol strength, tequila is generally stronger than wine. It's important to consume alcoholic beverages responsibly and be aware of their alcohol content.

Vodka and diabetes?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Drinking when you are a diabetic can involve some risks, you should consult your health care professional who manages your diabetes about how much risk you can take, considering your state of blood glucose control and organ health. The American Diabetes Association recommends that when a physician has approved an occasional alcoholic drink you restrict that to a maximum of 1 drink per day for females and 2 drinks per day for males or as your doctor instructs. 1 drink of vodka would equal 1.5 oz of the alcohol, plus any mixer.

Vodka is one of the types of alcohol that is often suggested for those who are diabetic or otherwise counting calories. Other suggestions are dry white wines. Rum is the same as vodka, although perhaps a slight improvement over vodka since rum is absorbed just a bit less quickly into the blood stream.

You must also consider calories consumed in alcoholic drinks in your total daily calorie count. For most of the diabetic exchange diets, usually 1.5 oz of 100 proof vodka (or gin, rum, whiskey, and brandy) is 100-120 calories and equal to 2 fat exchanges.

Some other things to consider and/or remember:

  • Only drink when you have food in your stomach and only in moderation.
  • Do not mix alcohol with your medications without consulting your doctor and/or pharmacist first.
  • Alcohol stimulates the appetite, you must be be especially well disciplined while drinking to avoid over eating or eating the wrong things.
  • Alcohol is a depressant. For those who have depressive mood disorders, or eating disorders this can trigger binges and other problems later.
  • A moderate amount of alcohol will slightly lower your blood sugars.
  • Excess amounts of alcohol will eventually raise the blood sugars.
  • Drink slowly to avoid a gush of carbs into your blood stream.
  • Use sugar-free mixers.
  • Know what to expect by keeping close checks on your blood sugars before, during and after drinking to be sure to be aware of how the alcohol affects your blood sugar control.
  • If you have diabetic neuropathy, you need to avoid over drinking which could cause you to have accidental injuries that might not heal.
  • If you get insulin shock from alcohol lowering your blood sugar levels, when evaluated with alcohol on your breath, your condition may be mistaken for only drunkenness and the hypoglycemia could go without treatment. Be sure you have plans and methods in operation for emergency personnel to discover your medical history, i.e., medical alert jewelry, etc.

More information about different types of alcohol:

  • 12 oz light beer includes 5 gm of carbs, is 100 calories and counts as 2 fat exchanges.
  • 4 oz dry wine includes 0 - 2 gm of carbs, is 80 - 85 calories and counts as 2 fat exchanges.
  • 1.5 oz of gin, rum, vodka, whiskey and brandy has no carbs, is 100 - 120 calories and counts as 2 fat exchanges.
  • 1.5 oz of liqueur counts as 2 fats and 1 starch exchange.
  • 12 oz wine cooler counts as 2 fats and 2 fruit exchanges.

How do you run liquor store?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The number of competitors in the area largely determines what type of pricing you will have. You don't want to be known as the highest price place in town but it is equally important not to be the cheapest.

Cost control is important. Beer, and to a lesser extent liquor, goes on sale periodically (also known as postoff). It is vital to try to time your purchases correctly so that you are always able to buy on sale. This means you have to carefully track sales and make accurate forecasts on how much inventory you will need. I try to aim for two months of inventory when an item is on sale, and two to three weeks if it is not.

Profit margins will depend on the competition and how well you buy. In my particular area, I aim for 25% profit margin for liquor, 20% beer, 40% on wine, soda, water, and snacks. Pick some well known items and make them cheap. People know these high profile items and will think your store is pricy or cheap based on a few items. We use Smirnoff and Jagermeister and our lower price items. On lesser known items you can get away with charging a higher price because people dont necessarily know what the item should cost.

Always try to expand your selection. If a customer ever asks for something that you dont have, write it down and tell them you'll have it next week. Have it next week. Friendliness and convenience is all that keeps people coming to you instead of the cheaper stuff at the grocery store. It's critically important to have a good computerized cash register (point of sale system). Instead of an electric cash register, a POS system will track sales, reduce inventory shrinkage and help you watch margin. They can also help you crack down on employee theft. Some even have ID scanners so you won't be fined for selling to minors. They can cost about $3000 per station but think of it as an investment.

How many calories in a vodka and tonic with lime?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

This is purely a taste issue. If you have a sweet enough lime, it may not need any sugar at all. I usually put about 2 teaspoons in mine, but I like to take some of the bitterness away from the tonic. Mix your drink the way you like it!

What is the average cost of liquor?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

This varies greatly. It depends on the type of alcohol (i.e beer, malt liquor, wine, vodka, whiskey, rum, etc) and the quality of the alcohol. For example, you can by a 6 pack of low alcohol content beer (i.e Keystone or Busch) for around four dollars. Or you can buy expensive, high-alcohol content beer that has is a rich ingredient brew (i.e Guiness, Michelob Amberbock) for $8 a 6 pack. Vodka ranges anywhere from $8 for a fifth (Burnettes) to $20 for a fifth (Smirnoff). Evan Williams whiskey is much cheaper than Jack Daniels ($20+).

Over half the retail price for a bottle of distilled spirits (vodka, gin, rum, whiskey, etc.) consists of taxes.
