    a measure of vodka is 2.5 syns and diet coke is free, so just work out how many drinks u wanna have and then u will know the syn values, if u have doubles its 5 a glass!!

    spirits are the lowest drinks u can have, but if u have a wine spritz with soda water u can make it last longer and only half the syns of say a 5 syn glass of wine!!
    avoid the bottled drinks like WKD and vokda ices ect coz they are high, like 9-11syns!

    if you have single vodkas with a lot of diet coke, that's 6 drink just in a days syns of 15, so easy to stick to if you don't want to drink a lot.

    Had to comment on this one, I think you will find a measure, 25ml, is 2.5 syns. Most pubs now however serve 35ml measures, so if you ask for a double it's a whopping 70ml and about 7 syns!!!!! I found this out after getting horribly drunk without realising! not good lol:eek:

    ok i just looked on the SW site and 35ml is [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Basic/Non Branded Foods Vodka 35ml
    [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][​IMG][/FONT] Original 4 Syns[/FONT]

    So i guess it just depends on what measures your pub does as to how many syns are in it.
    Thanks for pointing that out Jax coz no one ever tells ya about the dif measure sizes!!!
