My hubby makes wine, so he keeps me in a good supply of red... and my other occasional favourite is Bailey's Irish Cream... that sometimes get's my lactose intolerance going though!
Anyway, don't be afraid, there's lots of great choices out there! Even some gluten-free beer if you're so inclined! I am afraid to try that at $20.00 per 6 pack!!! La Messagere
One of my clients gave me a bottle to try at Christmas time, it's still on my kitchen counter! A bit too pricey for this girl!

Hmmm, maybe I should consider starting a gluten-free Alcohol Export company!!??

There are indeed mixed drinks in bottles that are sold the same places liquor is sold (laws differ in different states; in my state they're sold only in state-run liquor stores). Those do have liquor and are not malted.

I had previously written a list of the drinks I enjoy here, however when I went searching for this site: New Brunswick Liquor Commission my original post content was lost!
Anyway, as I mentioned previously, the only coolers that I have found with gluten in the ingredients is the Ceaser drinks, showing that they are made by Motts. Anyway, if you're so inclined, you can have a search through the product list, it is quite extensive for coolers, both spirit based and wine based!
As I mentioned, I could be looking at a good export service!

Except the aforementioned U.S. tax would be so high nobody would buy them.

Its completely possible to do the same with anything. Pizza, bread you name it you can convince yourself its gluten-free...
I did eventually convince myself that the ingredients listed did not contain any malt, and I think I bought (almost a year ago now, so memory is foggy)
If you drink grain alcohol or alcopops then It must not be the gluten, you probably just suffer from IBS and the gluten has nothing to do with it. Beer is low in protein anyway so mightest well add that to the list, it washes down the pizza rather well.
In the end its your health, convince yourself of whatever makes you happy.... I know of a few celiacs who think an odd beer doesn't hurt, I mean how bad can it be?
Another really easy way to find gluten-free food is just take the labels off. Its really quite simple with some warm soapy water to remove lots of labels and then there is n0 gluten.
You can of course decide not to take chances .... but hey you might get hit by a bus tomorrow?

I seem to do fine when I make a martini with absolute vodka, but am worried about the olive because of viniger...are those olives safe?
The olives should be fine. It's flavored vinegars and malt vinegar that are problems.
