Slimline G&T is on another planet

Alcoholics and dieters – help is at hand. The nice product development people at Strathmore have devised an eminently useful new drink.

Classic Juniper has all the characteristics of gin and tonic, minus the hangover. It’s a mix of Indian tonic water and juniper berry flavouring, with just one calorie per 100ml. Surely one of those “so simple we can’t believe we didn’t invent it earlier” moments.

At long last, lushes can sip away at their desks without having to hide the bottle when the boss comes in. Meanwhile, dieters can savour the G&T flavour without piling on the pounds.

There is, however, no replacing the real thing, so the Diary will see you down the pub. Make mine a double.
