    We are off to a party tonight and it's within walking distance of the house, so no excuses that I am the designated driver...

    I rarely drink alcohol, so have no idea what the best choice would be, syns wise? Wine? Or a spirit with a slimline tonic? I would probably only have one or two drinks, and I have saved all my syns for today.

    Help!

    I think a spirit and tonic would be better, it's lower in syns. It's 4 for 35ml of gin :)

    Baileys is 8 syns for 50ml
    smirnoff ice alchopop is 9syns for 275ml bottle

    Thanks for the suggestions - it was a small bar and there wasn't really anything I fancied, so ended up just drinking slimline tonic! I haven't stopped drinking because I am on SW, I just don't drink very much and never have.

    sounds like a success indeed!

    I love just bitter lemon on its own - I have it on its own all the time
