Our expert says:
Any alcohol will provide you with 29 kJ per gram, which is the second highest energy content after fat which provides 37 kJ per gram. When slimming, the simplest way to avoid this type of weight gain is not to drink any alcohol at all. If you do have alcohol then have as few drinks as possible and dilute them as much as possible (in this respect the Vawter is at least partially diluted by the sparkling water). Also keep in mind that the lime juice if sweetened may be adding energy to the drink.
Rather have sparkling water or soda water with a twist of lemon and ice next time.
