    O, I'm jetting off to sunny Mexico on Tuesday and have successfully lost 22lbs for the occasion. I don't plan to stick to SW whilst I'm away (all inclusive) but will try to choose healthy options where I can and avoid snacking. My downfall is most likely to be alcohol. What are the best drinks to have? I know syn values for wine etc is about 6 per glass. What about spirits and mixers?

    Thanks. I assumed there was already a thread, but it won't show up on my app :(

    Oh dear, I think I recall others saying they can't see everything when on their phones etc.

    Well, as it's Mexico, 2 local drinks listed in the takeaway section of the 'bible' are Margarita @ 6.5 syns & Tequila @ 9 syns. Spirits (35m) range from 3.5 for Bacardi, 4 for Brandy, Gin, Malibu, Rum, Vodka & Whisky- it also lists Tequila as 4 syns so the disparity is prob down to measures. Jack Daniels is 4.5, Grenadine is 5 & Jack Daniels is 5.5.

    Hope this helps & best wishes for a brill holiday.
