I like gin, but there's as many calories in tonic water as there are in coke (not the white powdery type). My gut has been steadily expanding over the last few weeks, so it needs addressing before I turn spherical.

What else works? Orange juice? Something else?

Depends how much you like gin, soda water and a squeeze of lime is fine for me as I can actually stand gin neat. 

If that sounds a bit raw cranberry juice is a nice mixer for gin, I'd not recommend OJ myself but that is purely personal preference. 

You could also go with some squeezed cucumber with fresh lemon and soda water, if you can find it out there a dash of elder-flower cordial with those is very popular.

A false dichotomy.

But I'd rather take the 2nd option.

Out of necessity I've tried Sprite Zero and it wasn't too bad (was worried you'd completely lose the Gin flavour), carbonated water and cucumber would probably be ok.  I am assuming you have the gin, otherwise some of the botanicals can be drunk neat easily enough.

I've just moved to slimline. Used to avoid it thinking it was a shitty diet coke like affair. Any decent tonic, fever tree seems to be the fave at the mo and ok, the slimline tends to be good too.

My other favourite is just to drink gin on it's own, save money on tonic and spend it on better gin.

Slimline tonic with lime flavouring is my pick.  Knocking the beer on the head has helped my lose a bit of belly.

I don't drink gin very often, but when I do I add it to my cider. Very tasty combination. Seriously, you have to try it.

got to go with KT on this one, gin has great flavours in it bit of fizzy water and you get all the taste the makers intended.
Hmmm tempted by cider though

Pink Lucozade zero.  Lovely, but possibly a bit girly? 😂
