What Is Your Favorite Alcoholic Drink?

I am now a recovering beer drinker (seriously, gluten free beer blows, sorry) and looking for some good - and easy to make - drinks. I have found a few ciders to be OK, but most aren't really my favorite (and those with added flavors give me a headache)!

What are your favorite drinks? Here are mine so far..

- Hot Whiskey with Powers Irish Whiskey (best winter drink, Powers is triple distilled and there are no gluten ingredients in their mash (according to their website).

- Salty Dog with Ciroc Vodka - Grapefruit and vodkawith a salted rim. Ciroc is a grape vodka, so totally gluten-free, and my favorite!

- for the beer connoisseur, the most amazing cider/beer replacement I have found is Spire Mountain Dark and Dry Apple Cider! Unfortunately it is not available in the midwest, where I live.

Anyone else want to share?

I was always a beer drinker before being diagnosed. Other alcoholic beverages just do not give me the same pleasure. So now I have aquired a taste for gluten-free beer. After 5 years, either I have forgotten what real beer tastes like, or gluten-free beer is getting better. I will agree with you that some of it is pretty bad, but I quite like La Messagere (the red only), New Planet (had it on a trip to Boulder and wish I could buy it here), and Bards. If I am out where these are not available I will ask for a Strongbow (Cider).

If you want a warm drink, I like to use non-hard cider. Get the good kind with the bits in it. Microwave to warm. Add - rum & cinnamon schnapps or cinnamon syrup or carmel coffee syrup. You have to check which are gluten-free.

Oscar and I totally agree!!!!!!!

I'm about ready to go have a Bombay Sapphire martini---freezing cold and bone dry--as in absolutely no vermouth :lol: ---right now.

Thank God for gut healing. I admit it, I missed booze.

It's only 4:52, but I'm old enough and who cares?

Black Russian - favorite drink in the snow

currently abstaining do to some pesky gut inflammation, but have tolerated red wine quite well and very often whilst living gluten-free - and plan to again just as soon as possible :D

OHHh! I have to try that! I love apricot nectar, but don't drink it often. My mom would give that to us when we were sick as kids. She also gave us blackberry brandy, but that is a different story. I wonder if blackberry brandy is gluten free....

Thanks! I have nev er seen the La Messagere. I think that New Planets "IPA" is pretty good, but I am just not a fan of IPAs. Their ale is terrible! I am not a fan of Bards. I am pretty sure that I am not going to find anything to beat a Guiness!

Oh! Thanks! The milk in the white russian always kept me away from the whole "russian" genre.

My Irish Hubs, who views Guinness as "mother's milk"---says the Green's Dubble ale is close enough.

(I do wonder if he lies about that so I do not feel guilty that he gave it up for me.) :D

The local beer distributor here happily orders it for us. See if your nearby one will for you too! :)

I'll share that thought with the hubs.

I have to say the Guinness I had in Ireland was just ridiculously creamy and delicious (and I don't even drink it as a rule) ...this was years ago, of course. :(

Maybe you guys could ask your local beer distributor to order it for you. They are pretty good about that.

Deep South ladt here. Bourbon and branch... that's bourbon and water above the Mason-Dixon. I do find, though, that sour mash bourbons such as Jack Daniels, give me a reaction. Others don't.

    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
    • While you could very well be vitamin/mineral deficient, you could also have issues with your thyroid.  Autoimmune thyroid is common with .......autoimmune celiac disease.  Your doctor should order a full thyroid panel, including thyroid antibodies.   Your blood sugar should also be checked (autoimmune diabetes).  I am not saying you have these issues, but these AI issues are common with celiac disease.  In fact, you can develop or have more than one AI issue.   If I feel a very strong need to nap, I know my thyroid is off and my doctor should be notified.  A simple blood test usually verifies that an adjustment to my thyroid replacement is needed.   That said, you are in the healing stages of celiac disease.   Eat healthy and include plenty of fats to keep you satiated.  Try to avoid processed foods.  Make sure that gluten-free diet is varied and full of veggies.  Get plenty of rest.  Just listen to your body.  Soon you will feel much better.  
    • Hi and welcome Can you tell us a little about your diet? What are you eating on a typical day? You may find that some simple switches in food choices can deliver more energy and fewer spikes and crashes. This is something that receives too little attention, particularly from the medical community. It can come as a huge shock to the system and as the implications become apparent its easy to feel overwhelmed. This certainly happened to me and many others here so first do know that you're not alone. You are currently grieving believe it or not and you will be going through the stages of grief.  Second, although it may not feel it now, it WILL get better and you will adjust and adapt as you get used to the diet and start focusing on what you can still do rather than what you can't.  In the meantime, this is a good place to vent and share those feelings as they are perfectly natural and understandable and whilst not always helpful,  they are a part of you and a part of the healing process. Go easy on yourself, this is very early days. You are young, which is good news, it means you will heal sooner and you will adapt quicker and there's lots of good things on the way for you as your body gets a rest from the gluten that's been holding you back.  All the best! Matt
