Are Apple Martinis gluten-free?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what's okay to order from a bar? Last week, I went out with friends and had a few apple martinis. A few days later I suffered a horrible, excruciating Celiac attack (severe naseau, diarrea), so bad I thought Id need an ambulance. Ive also been eating out lately cuz it was my birthday. I was very safe in ordering (bland food). The waitresses went out of their way to make sure nothing had gluten. The only thing I can think of what caused my attack was the alcohol. Can anyone shed some light? Thanks!

It's been awhile since I've had apple martini's but those should be safe. Here is a list of gluten-free alcohols:

What I would suspect is the eating out. Even though the food itself is gluten-free doesn't mean they aren't cooking it on teh same grill as gluten or touching gluten foods and the touching your's ect.

Some, not all of us, react to gluten grain alcohols regardless of the fact that they are 'supposed' to be gluten free. If the martini had a gluten grain vodka it could very well have gotten you, but so could eating out. If you want to know for sure get some potato vodka and a small bottle of regular gluten grain vodka. Wait until you are symptom free and not consuming anything else that is risky. Have a martini with the potato vodka every night for 4 nights. See how you feel. Then wait a few days and do the same with the gluten grain vodka and see how you feel. That should give you the answer as to whether or not you can tolerate distilled gluten grains.
