With so many variations to the Martini drink, it is useful to be aware of how many calories are in the cocktail. Through this, you can gauge and moderate your drink and factor it into your diet regimen. Remember that the more the cocktail tastes sweet, the more it contains high calories. This is because these cocktails contain liquors and fresh juices which carry high sugar concentration.

An Apple Martini in a basic martini-sized glass contains 235 calories while a Cosmopolitan contains 213 calories. A vodka martini straight up contains 200 calories. Furthermore, a vodka martini containing 1 oz. of olives has roughly 250 calories. A gin martini contains 125 calories. If you are going to add 1 oz. of olives to a gin martini, it will contain 175 calories.

If you make a cocktail with blueberries or strawberries, you could expect to add 30 to 50 calories, which makes it a 180 to 200 calorie drink. A chocolate martini contains as much as 430 calories for a 3 to 4 ounce glass. If the chocolate martini drink is made without cream, this decreases the calorie content. French martinis are composed of Chambord, vodka and pineapple juice and contain approximately 150 calories.
