Whether you're celebrating a major promotion at work or offering a toast at your best friend's wedding, it's common to do so with a glass of champagne in your hand. This sparkling wine, known for its trademark cork pop, is best to enjoy in small sips. Although many varieties of alcohol are high in calories, champagne isn't on this list.

Lighter Than Wine

The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism reports that champagne has about 84 calories per 4-ounce serving. This caloric content is significantly lower than many other forms of wine. Port, for example, which is typically served in 2-ounce servings, has 90 calories per serving size. Sweet wine, served 3.5 ounces at a time, contains 165 calories. Five-ounce servings of red and white wine have 125 and 121 calories, respectively.
