Okay so I don't drink much but when I do I have a cocktail and it is usually
"Malibu Rum" with pineapple juice and grenadine. I visited the "Malibu Rum" site
and phoned them and received date back that their rum is gluten-free.... I am looking for confirmation
here as I trust this community more so than the manufacturers out there lol sad I know.

Also does anyone know if Grenadine is gluten-free?

Is all "rum" in itself gluten-free?

Are Pina Colada's gluten-free and daquiri's?

Rum is made from a sugarcane base rather than a grain base so yes, all pure rums will be gluten free. the only place you might find gluten would be in an added ingredient however Malibu is one of my few 'safe" alcohols (I react to all the wheat or mixed grain based alcohols like Van Gogh)

as for Pina Colada, should be, the ingredients are essentially pineapple juice and coconut cream, daquiri's are rum, lime juice and sugar so are also gluten free by extension so should a mojito be safe.
if you like dark rum you could try a "dark and stormy" dark seal rum, Jamaican ginger beer (not a true beer so no malt or barley) and lime juice

(this makes sense, my mother had MS)


What if there were no hypothetical questions?
