5. Gin Can Help You Lose Weight. We all know alcohol is a major cause of weight gain. Gin is one the least calorific alcoholic drinks you can have. A single glass of gin is around 110 calories, while a pint of beer has 180 and glass of red wine is more like 159 calories. The numbers are more in your favor if you compare gin to popular mixed drinks–many times those drinks are three times the amount of calories as gin! It might not seem like a lot, but when you’re having multiple drinks across an evening, that could add up to the equivalent of almost 800 extra calories.
