Â?Mixed drinks can brighten up any low-carbohydrate diet,Â? says the Low-Carb Bartender

Bob Skilnik, author of The Low-Carb Bartender: Carb Counts for Beers, Wine, Mixed Drinks and More (ISBN:1-59337-253-1, Adams Media, $9.95), wants dieters to know that they can enjoy adult beverages this summer and still hold those pesky carbs in check. His drink reference book lists the carb counts of over 1000 worldwide beers, 400 wines, and more than 200 mixed drinks.

“Aside from the abundance of low-carb beers and wines now available on the market today,” notes Skilnik, “mixed drinks can also be enjoyed if you know the carbohydrate counts of the ingredients being used. Although the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) now allows manufacturers of adult beverages to voluntarily list the nutritional analysis of their products on labels and advertising copy, few, if any, have done so. That's why the carbohydrate information found in The Low-Carb Bartender book is so valuable. Just remember, moderation, and not deprivation, is the key to successful weight loss.”

Bob Skilnik is a certified brewer and freelance writer. He is a contributor to the Good Eating Section of the Chicago Tribune and is a columnist for the LowCarb Energy magazine. Skilnik is represented by Lisa Ekus of Lisa Ekus Public Relations Company, LLC. Ekus has represented numerous food and drink personalities including Emiril Lagasse, Debbie Fields, and Miss Piggy.
