Calories are NOT a physical substance. A CALORIE is a unit of
measurement used to measure food energy. It is the amount of energy
needed to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water by 1°C.
Therefore of course they can't distil over, any more than a degree
celcius or fahrenheit could destil over.
First off to Mason, Speed, Trid and Harry:
You all are making total assumptions.... (assume == making ASS of U and ME)
First, your assuming he's only using one shot of 40% rum in his drink...
Second, you assuming he's only using 40% ABV in his Rum and Pepsi Max.
Third, he never mentioned how much volume of Pepsi Max to Rum was in that drink.
So... whether there is 7 calories per gram or 56 calories in 1 shot of rum, its all (ir)relative. .
When I make my rum and Coke (COKE DA NO PEPSIA - SNL with lemon of course). Its usually my 151 (average) un-diluted Rum (straight from the pot still) about 10 "shots - whaterver a shot is lol" to a couple or so of liters of Coke :):)....
Usually lasts me most of the nite (if I cin remember correctly).
So screw the calories and ENJOY...
Vino es Veritas,
Jim aka Waldo
