Holidays and Syns

The most low-syn options are spirits and mixers. Check your food optimising book for a full list, but things like vodka, rum, whisky, tequila etc. are usually around the 3syn mark for one shot. Then just top it off with diet coke, pepsi max, diet lemonade, etc and you've got your drink.

Kay gives great advice. Spirits are your best option if you intent to stick to plan whilst you're away.
However, I know ALOT of people who don't necessarily stick to plan rigidly whilst on holiday, but stick to it right up to the minute they go away, and get right back on it when they get home, and they stick to it as much as they can whilst away.
You are meant to enjoy yourself on holiday, so don't feel like you have to stick 100% to plan if you would like a couple of pints one night

The following spirits are 3 syns per 25ml

These are 2.5 syns per 25ml
All varieties of rum

Sambuca is 4 syns per 25ml

I can't think of any other spirits, but if you do let me know and I'll check!
