Belvedere vodka comes in a variety of flavors if you want to spruce up your cocktail. You’ll find it in grapefruit, citrus, raspberry and orange varieties, to name a few. No matter which kind you prefer, you’ll get about the same number of calories per ounce. Because the high alcohol content in Belvedere vodka gives you lots of calories but very few nutrients, measure out your pour so you can keep track of the calories in your beverage.
