Not in the mood for the bloat that goes along with beer? Knock back a couple of Satan’s Whiskers—the juniper berries in gin act as a diuretic, meaning you won’t retain water (although you will be hitting the head a lot more). On the upside, if it’s a buzz you’re looking for, you’ll need to drink fewer of these to catch it—the calorie and carb content is comparable to that of beer, but this baby packs a hell of a lot more punch.
