Drink in moderation only.
Avoid 'low sugar' alcohol as it contains more alcohol than ordinary varieties
and also more calories.
Choose beer or larger with an alcohol content of less than 5%.
If you drink sherry or wine, choose medium/dry varieties in preference,
although the occasional sweeter drink is fine.
If using a mixer - use sugar free varieties.
Eat food with or shortly after alcoholic drinks.
