Like a vodka soda, the age old G&T can really get you the best calorie bang for your buck. Try mixing one to two shots of gin (depending on how many drinks you plan on nursing) with zero-calorie diet tonic water. Then add a little squirt of lemon juice or lemonade, a small pour of grapefruit juice, or an orange slice for some added flavor.

This drink comes in between 90 and 180 calories, depending on how much gin you use.
