The weather is hotting up, so we decided to come up with some Slimming World friendly cocktails like this 3.5 Syn June Bug Cocktail. We love Midori, White Rum, lemon & lime & Lilt so decided to combine them all!
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
White Rum is one most Slimming World friendly spirits there is at just 3.5 Syns for 35ml. It’s really not bad at all!
Sometimes we want to make our Syns go further, so we thought this3.5 Syn June Bug Cocktail would be a nice way to do it.
When it starts to get warm, we like to sit outside with a jug of this 3.5 Syn June Bug Cocktail, and glug the lot. The June Bug has long been my favourite cocktail.
We can do this without feeling guilty too – get in!
You should check out our Slimming World guide to Spirits & Liqueurs by the way – they’re all listed on there!
If you like Vodka, you really should try our 4 Syn Raspberry Vodka Fizz. It really is heaven in a glass. Alcohol & speed food, what else could be better? It’s just as nice as this 3.5 Syn June Bug Cocktail!

Firstly you need Midori. Midori is a melon liqueur, and is really rather nice! It’s what gives the June bug it’s green tinge at the bottom of the jug.
You can buy it from most major supermarkets (we’ve seen it in Asda) or you can get it from Amazon.
How do you work out the Syns in this 3.5 Syn June Bug Cocktail?
We’ve worked this 3.5 Syn June Bug out based on the recipe yielding 2 large glasses, but you can get as many or as few portions as you want, just remember to adjust the Syns accordingly!
If you want to have the jug to yourself, then it’ll be 7 Syns for the lot.
By the way, for the Syn value of Midori, we rang the Syns Hotline 😎
