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

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.

    • JMG got it down pretty much, the painful and gluten effects from eating it should clear up in a month, damage symptoms you might notice some differences as early as 2-4months but most do not noticed major improvements til about 6 months to a year. I have been gluten-free for over 3 years all my villi have healed according to the doctor on my last scope. It is very important to not cheat and avoid any kind of CC as it can set you back weeks or months. I would suggest a whole foods only diet for the first month or two, no dairy, simple stews, soups, etc. make for easy to digest and simple meals. Check out the 101 thread for some good information. PS a new combo crockpot, steamer, rice cooker combo and liners for a crock pot will be a life saver for making simple meals and easy clean ups. Quick cook microwave ware will also be handy making sure you have gluten-free cooked meals if you can not get new cookware immediately. I normally suggest cleaning out the entire house, scrubbing down knobs, handles, on the drawers, sink, fridge, cubbards etc.  throw out condiment jars, checking ingredients on everything in the house including your hygiene and makeup. Putting in drawer organizers for new utensils, throwing out scratched glass, teflon, plastic, and steel cookware. Throwing out any Tupperware, and cutting boards, some utensils that can not be cleaned well. Some times you can save cast iron and stainless steel cook ware if you can run it in your ovens cleaning cycle over 600F. Gluten is a protein like blood if you can not clean a item where a CSI team will not find it give it up, it is not a germ that can be killed with disinfectant.  I use freezer paper for clean prep surfaces, also makes clean up a breeze, I tend to use gloves alot also when fixing foods,
    • Hi Allie and welcome First off, I know 3 years was a long wait, but at 17 you've figured out celiac way before many people do. That should make a big impact on minimising its effects and helping you with the diet, so, bizarrely enough, congratulations!   A lot of good advice has been brought together in this thread:  Don't worry that your symptoms are bad now. As you follow the diet your body will begin healing itself and you're still very young so hopefully this will go really smoothly. Think in terms of the next 6 months rather than weeks however, recovery will likely take a little time. Eat as healthily as you can, lots of whole foods and try to avoid the gluten free processed substitutes as your digestive system needs all the help it can get at this moment.  You may want to avoid dairy as well for now and think about reintroducing it later. This site has been really helpful to me and others. I hope you find it just as useful. Best of luck!   ps, your increased reaction to gluten during the challenge phase was perfectly normal. Many find that reintroducing it much worse than the initial affects and take some time to get over the challenge. That's why you'll see lots of posts here urging folks to 'stay on gluten' till their testing is complete!
    • Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
    • Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks 
    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.
