    Hey Everyone.

    I've got a few nights out this week and I'm trying to plan ahead so i don't go overboard (I usually go mad with the aul syns when alcohol is involved).

    I want to stay away from getting bottles of win cos I've learnt that after one I just want another...and another...and another!

    So I want to stick to vodka...more effort to go to the bar for each drink - rather than having a whole bottle on the table to freely pour from!

    I know vodka (35ml) is 4 syns and soda water is free.
    If I have a dash of lime (or blackcurrant) cordial in it...how many syns does that increase it to?

    Thanks,
    M

    According to this you are talking about 28 calories for a 25ml shot of lime cordial - that would make it 1.5 syns.

    Actually, scrap that! Here is the Schweppes nutritional info

    http://www.coca-cola.co.uk/brands/schweppes-cordials.html

    This says 28 to 35 calories for 250mls! So neglible syns because who in their right mind is going to drink that much lime cordial!

    LOL

    See that's what I think re: the amount. I'd literally have a dash of it in 4 or five vodkas!

    i think I'll just count it as nothing until I hear otherwise!

    Thanks!

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news... I have checked online and 50ml of Rose's lime cordial is 2.5 sins. In a standard vodka, lime and soda you would probably have close to 25ml of cordial so I would count each two drinks as 2.5 sins to be on the safe side. x

    Looking at the Schweppes site again I think I agree - the ingredients information is given "as diluted". But it is very misleading because there is no mention of that on the nutritional info page! Sorry for the raising false hopes.
