Bottled Cocktail Labeled "Low-Calorie"

A bottled margarita is claimed to be low in calories, with only 41 calories per 1.5 oz.


Any such claim would need to be supported with a statement of average analysis (nutrition info) on the product and anywhere the claim is made (e.g., website). The serving size in this case is 5 fluid oz (not 1.5 oz, which would be appropriate for straight liquor, but not a mixed drink). That quantity of the beverage would have much more than 40 calories (the maximum allowed per serving for use of the "low-calorie" claim), so this product cannot be called "low in calories."
