    What do you drink on a night out thats not too bad??

    I know the ways of drink a alcohol drink then a soft drink but that wont happen!!

    I normally drink *some* Larger before i go out, then may be a pint whilst i'm out then i go on to vodka lime and lemonade....

    Sooo whats best between this lot...(i dont know any alcohol syns)

    Vodka, lime & Lemonade (i dont think pubs do diet lemonade) Verses Dissaronno & diet coke??

    Or A Pint of lager Verses Rose Wine / Rose wine with diet lemonade (to make the drink longer)

    These are only what i drink so suggestions of vodka & diet coke (eww makes me yak) wont really help.. :rolleyes:

    Thank you ladies, im really trying to stay on track and dont want to mess up xxx

    Hi, lager is a bit of a no no, as its 5 syns per half. Rose wine is 6 syns per 175ml glass and diet lemonade is free, so to make your drink last the wine and lemonade would prob be better. Do you like cider? I'm sure I read somewhere that magners/bulmers is 11.5 syns per bottle and the bottles are big. Do you like vodka with any other mixer? Cranberry juice maybe? Disaronno not bad at 3.5 syns per shot. Hope this helps? x

    forgot to mention do you 'flex' your syns when you know your going out? I went out last weekend, so on wednesday and thursday i had only a couple of syns then went out drinking on friday (wine,vodka, among other things i cant even remember lol) and still had a loss!

    Thank you Princess your a star.

    I have been saving syns everyday, like 4 a day from monday and ive only had 2 up to now today.

    It looks like I should go with Dissarano & Coke off the syns and maybe 1 cheeky rose wine.
    I'm going to remember what i drink and write it all down so i can syn it properly.

    Thanks again :) x

    No problem! I'm a bit of a drinker/party girl lol so I found it really hard at first watching what I drink! Also just moved in with the boyfriend so its very tempting to have far too much wine with dinner etc!! Flexing syns is the only option for me as I cannot stick to only a couple of drinks. Good luck with it and let me know how you go on weight loss wise after your next night out! I have a whole list of alcohol syns so let me know if there are any other drinks you fancy x

    What you are talking about is saving your syns so you can use more at the weekend. Flexi synning is something completely different and it gets a bit confusing if you mix the terms up :)
