The first thing most people say when i tell them i have Celiac is "OMG, you can't drink beer???"

Thank goodness i was never a beer drinker! But my old stand-by was always Smirnoff Ice (you know, the MALTED beverages?) and now i'm left questioning what's good to drink when i go out.

I need some simple, easy-for-the-bartender-to-make drink ideas. I hate being that chick who orders something obscure that has 15 ingredients when everyone else is just getting a beer.

i know most wine is ok but i'm wondering what type of mixed drinks everyone suggests. (i usually lean more towards the fruity stuff.)

I'll be interested to see what people say, because after 3 years, I still freeze up when I get to the bar and don't know what to order! I was a beer drinker before and loved it... also loved the price... the Celiac price tag is heftier when you go out! ;)

I sometimes get Malibu or Disaronno (amaretto) on the rocks. I've also had vodka and cranberry, when I can confirm that the juice is Ocean Spray. That is the tricky thing at the bar -- sometimes they don't know anything about the juices they have on hand. Also, Hpnotiq is yummy and can be combined with vodka.

Bacardi and Coke is not fruity, but still fun. :)

I have some suggestions for you!

Most bars will make a mojito now w/o rolling their eyes -

Mojito's are rum based so they are safe!

A Rum Punch is also good - very fruity, uses pineapple juice!

I tend to drink mainly vodka drinks...I have yet to find one that has bothered me as all are distilled and the flavored varieties are safe as well...

So a Cape Codder (vodka & cran)

I've yet to find a Dekuypers syrup that has gluten so all those fancy martini's that use those are safe

Appletini

French martini

you could also do a margarita - if you fear sour mix like I do (heartburn) just ask for it with Rose's Lime juice instead!

I have a terrific at home recipe I'll share with you -

I call it Fizzy Lifting Drink

5 lemons juiced

1 cup simple syrup

1 cup vodka (lemon or plain)

Seltzer

juice lemons into pitcher, pour syrup & vodka into pitcher (I like a citrus vodka for this, but plain also works!) fill pitcher with ice and then top off with seltzer

Slice up a lemon and include a slice with each glass!!

You can of course play with the lemon/vodka mixture depending on your taste

If you don't know how to make simple syrup:

2 cups sugar

1 cup water

bring to boil in saucepan, reduce to simmer till sugar evaporates

cool completely before using!

Enjoy!

One of my favs, though its sneaky cause its all alcohol is a Silk Panty, as a drink, not a shot. Its Peach Schnapps and Vodka. Tastes like candy. I'm a big fan of Green Apple Martini's, as mentioned all the Dekuyper mixers are gluten-free. I go one for one with water when I'm drinking with those having beer, so I don't get drunker than them too quickly. I usually order a glass of water with my drink, then don't let myself have another drink until my water is finished. Helps with the hangovers as well.

Word to the wise: playing quarters with people when they are drinking beer and your penalty shot is liquor sets you up for a whole pile of fail. Just saying. (my penalty drink was kept away from the beer to be safe)

Oh man... I have to admit, Smirnoff Ices are one of the things I miss most. These days, I'm most likely to order a Tom Collins. :D

    • Update: I have been taking Chanca Piedra (specifically, Royal Break-Stone, by Whole World Botanicals) on an empty stomach in the morning for the liver-gall bladder and surprisingly my lips are almost normal. I know the peeling lips may be caused by different issues but I hope this info helps someone.
    • Hi Cristiana, I'm so sorry that you are still not feeling well.  When do you go back to your Dr? I wish I could help more, but it's so hard to know what was what when I was on the PPI.  I was diagnosed with celiac and h. Pylori on the same day so I was already feeling awful.  Then I was put on 2 antibiotics with the  PPI.  I do remember feeling terribly nauseous, but just assumed it was the antibiotics.  When I started tapering, I still wasn't feeling well.  It really took months before I started to feel decent.  But I assume that it was the celiac. I really hope you start to see some improvement...((((hugs))))
    • @scorpio it has now been almost 2 years and I am curious if you ever found something that worked for you. My boyfriend suffers from EC as well and I am desperate to find a resolution for his sake. He's been dealing with it for over a year now and it is taking a toll on his work and social life.   Any updates would be helpful
    • I am going through the diagnosis stage as well. My family has strong history for celiac disease, and while I always had discomfort and other symptoms ( some of which i didnt know about) I wasn't tested until recently because I was DEATHLY afraid of needles. The results are highly positive but I am still getting a biopsy in early August. From what I have learned about it is that the endoscopy is beneficial to looking for not only signs of celiac but also other diseases that have similar symptoms to celiac. Because of your mixed result it wouldn't hurt to get a biopsy but it really is personal preference. I understand what you are going through and didn't like the idea much either but I really think it is something that can help you in the long run. P.S. There are lots of testing being done for new medications or other ways to "cure" celiac other than a gluten-free diet. It is my understanding that this can only be covered by insurance with a confirmed diagnosis (biopsy) but I don't need to get into that. The bottom line is that a biopsy is confirmatory especially since the doctors could see in the intestine, so to me, I feel better knowing that there's no chance of going gluten-free for nothing.
    • Hi Everyone!  Thank you for all your responses!  This site is so helpful and I appreciate everyone who replied to my post.   I was able to get an earlier appt with Maureen Leonard who was absolutely wonderful like you all said and after more testing and even a genetics test, my son now has a diagnosis of celiac disease.  He's been gluten free now for a few weeks.  He is doing very well on the diet so far.  He does seem to be sleeping better which was always a problem since he was an infant, so that is a good sign!  We test in 3 months and I hope that his iron levels go up.
