    I used to drink vodka & fat coke mmm nom nom.
    I hate diet drinks :jelous: they just taste of fake sugar & it turns my tummy!

    Fruit juice is pretty high in syns so just wondering if anyone can suggest what i can have as a mixer instead of diet drinks or fruit juice?
    Probably asking too much but hey one of you might have a great idea :D

    Mine is always a Vodka and Sprite Zero. I've tried lots of diet lemonades, 7 Up, etc., but to me the best mixer is Sprite Zero. I guess you'll just have to go on a tasting bender to see what you like best!

    Cheers! :party0027:

    Off the top of my head think its 2.5 for a pub measure of 25ml (anyone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong) I had to get a measuring cup as my free-hand poured versions at home were waaaaaaay over the top :D
