    Hi guys,

    Ive been on WW pro points for just over a week and lost 6.5lbs. I like to go out at weekends and have a few drinks. I know vodka and diet soft drinks is only 2PP i was wonbdering if anyone can reccomendn anymore low point drinks as i think im going to get sick of drinking vodka every weekend.

    Its my 21st this weekend so I want to go out and have a few drinks.

    Many thanks!

    oh i love amaretto :) thats a good one to know. I know when i was on the old plan malibu was only half a point with a diet mixer. But the books I have bought only had a small selection of drinks in. I only really drink spirits any way. So its look like if i stick to spirits il be fine.

    19 points per bottle of wine? Is that white wine?

    2pp would be a reasonable estimate for malibu.

    I would say the majority of average spirits (with no cream or anything added) will be about 2pp for a pub measure... theres only so many points you can get into 25ml of liquid :p

    I turn into a nutter on vodka...

    I swear I won't drink it and then after a few gins vodka seems like a fabulous idea!!

    Vodka = A very messy gembee!!

    But...

    Messy = Fun!!!

    So happy to discover that Crabbies (alcoholic Ginger beer) is only 4pp a bottle. Will be my drink of the summer now as its half the points of cider. :)
