    How bad is diet tonic and Hendricks gin? Although I love a glass of white, I cannot bring myself to buy a bottle if I'm not making a chicken casserole in the week so just wondering? Or am I living in fantasy land?

    i dont drink gin ,but enjoy the odd whisky. It does little at the time but blood levels seem to be a bit higher all of the next day. If the tonic is diet it probably wont do much.

    i've always (gin wise!) drunk hendricks.. to be honest it seems to have very little effect on my BG...

    I've read Gin has pretty much no effect anyhow.. and diet tonic has very little as well... and the cucumber.. it's almost like a health drink then!!!

    I have maybe one a week.. which is nice.... !!

    How bad is gin and tonic? After a couple they'll feel great you can cope with any negative repercussions the next morning
