Your best choice is spirits and a diet mixer.
I find that most places don't tend to have diet lemonade, so I usually end up with Diet Coke and Malibu if I'm watching what I'm drinking (2.5 Syns per 25ml)
But soda water is free, so you can always have that too

Vodka is 3 Syns per 25ml
Bacardi is 2.5 Syns per 25ml
Whisky is 3 Syns per 25ml

Any other drinks you might want?

Wine is always high. 9 Syns for a large glass at least.
A pint of lager is usually 11.5 Syns for 4-6% abv

I'll stick to spirits and Diet Coke then! How do I know if it is a 25ml measure tho? Is that what they give for a single drink?

Most places give 25ml, but Some places can give 35ml for a single, but if they've got the bottles on the back of the wall, see if they've got the measure written on. Sometimes you can see what it is. Otherwise you could ask?

But as a general rule, vodka, Malibu, and whisky are 4 Syns per 35ml. But Bacardi is 3.5 Syns per 35ml.
