    How about substituting sake or shoju. Try it in a Mojito.

    Anything and soda, or anything on the rocks.

    Not so sure about the calories, but I like dry vermouth on the rocks with a twist for a light drink.

    Well alcohol is not in any sense of the word a diet drink. I've known a few people that were quite successful with very low carb diets during the week and drank what they wanted on the weekend. I suspect it acted as a refeed and the surplus of calories and the very easy access to energy from the alcohol probably kept the metabolism from slowing down. Drinking whatever the hell you want may not work for everyone, but in this context its worked for at least a few.

    That glass has been mine almost every single night since January 2012. I can't wait to get back home so I don't have to drink so fucking much to enjoy life. icon_lol.gif

    I make a pretty decent skinny mojito.

    Clear rum
    Sprite Zero
    A lemon sliced into rings
    A lime sliced into rings
    A few clumps of fresh mint (sliced chiffonade)
    Stevia in the Raw
    Ice cubes


    Slice the lemon and lime and put them in a pitcher with the ice and Sprite Zero. Slice the mint and then rub it between the palms of your hands (the pressure and warmth helps express the oils/flavors of the mint). Mix in the mint, the rum (to your own tastes), and a half to full cup of Stevia. Again, to taste.

    AMoonHawk saidgin is supposed to be less fattening then vodka


    There's only a negligible difference in calories or sugars between gin, vodka, rum, tequila, or whiskey. If vodka drinks tend to be more fattening, it's because they tend to be more candy-like.

    A dry martini could be a good option, though.
