Dear Mish
Probably the glass of soda water because it does not contain any energy (useful for slimming) and also no additives of any kind. Then the beer which although it has a relatively high energy content of 516 kg/300 ml glass, it also contains some B vitamins and some research indicates that beer, like wine, can have a protective influence on heart disease if used in Moderation! The cola drinks are basically just a mixture of sugar, caffeine (which can become addictive), acid and flavourants which can cause weight gain and tooth decay. So stick to the soda water and if you drink beer, do so in moderation.
