Order a vodka martini, and your bartender will likely hand you a mix of 1 jigger of 80-proof vodka and a half-jigger of dry vermouth, totaling 127 calories, according to Drinks Mixer. Use a higher proof of vodka, such as 90 or 100-proof, and your calorie count will increase by 13 to 23 calories per jigger.
