Definitely stick with water overall.
If you'd like to have a hard drink, consider your diet. If you are doing it for a limited run (1-6 months) to determine the worst offenders, then consider not having any alcohol at all.
If you are trying to maintain this long term, then avoid types of alcohols that are higher in carbohydrates, which make them likelier to be higher in overall FODMAPs. So no beer, stick to dry wines if you have wine at all, and consider distilled spirits like vodka or whiskey. I would watch out for gin or flavored vodkas.
Basically, if you want a hard drink, but want to be 100% FODMAP free: ice + vodka + seltzer (not tonic).
