Diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and Hypertension also very high triglyceride levels. I would like to have an alcoholic beverage on occasion and would like to know which is the lesser of the 2 evils - Bud Light or Captain Morgan Spiced Rum (mixed with Coke Zero)?

Welcome to the forums.
I am not very well aware of alcohols, having read your question I have searched the internet and wikipedia.
All alcoholic drinks are classified according to a term called 'alcohol by volume' (ABV).
Cider. beer, wine etc have an ABV content from 2-18%, while vodka, rum, gin, whiskey etc have a value of 30-60%.
I'd say that Bud Light is the lesser of two evils(4.2%), rather than you having Captain Morgan Spiced Rum undiluted.
I hope that helped.
