    A very clever lady in our class has made a syn free alcohol free pimms substitute.
    It tasted pretty good and we be good to sip in sunshine if we have some.
    It is 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar, 2 litres of diet lemonade, mint and whatever fruit you normally use in pimms.
    It was very refreshing and could be used as every other drink at a bbq

    Sorry to be a party pooper, but just wanted to remind people that balsamic vinegar has 2.5 syns per tablespoon so this wouldn't be free.

    Still sounds good though and is still low

    I think you mean balsamic dressing Cocktail - according to the SW handbook, vinegars of all varieties are free.
