  • Alcohol, What do you drink?

    I'm just curious what you guys drink or if you do at all. Anyway, I had 3 drinks last night consisting of 2 glasses of white wine, gin and tonic. I got drunk from this. I really don't drink very much and I have freaking headache today. I had a horrible sleep too last night.

    Anyway, I'm going out for my birthday next weekend and yes I plan on drinking. What are some paleo friendly mix drinks can I get?

    When I drink (which has been too often just recently), I drink either red wine or single malt whisky with water.

      Spirits. Cocktails. No mixes, fresh ingredients only.

        I don't drink, never did. IIRC, the red wine is always the top choice.

            whatever i want. hard liquor like scotch, bourbon, etc. usually straight. or micro-brewed/craft beer (i'm a huge beer snob). i really don't drink that often (maybe 2-3 drinks per week) so it really doesn't matter to me.

              I don't drink often... maybe once or twice per month, a few drinks each time. I also don't like beer much (though I will say yes to cider if I want something fizzy) and I hate hate hate sweet liquor (rum, whiskey, bourbon, etc.) so those are things I rarely if ever have.

              My usual go-to is wine - 90% of the time I choose red, but if it's crazy hot out or I'm feeling exhausted (or wearing light-colored clothes that I don't want to stain) I will have white wine or sangria. Yeah, I'm "that person" who will be the only weirdo to order wine at a dive bar or pub, haha.

              If I'm out and about and debauchery is part of the plan, I will have vodka and seltzer or gin and tonic. If I feel like being fancy, I'll get an extra-dry vodka martini with a twist.

                a margarita on the rocks, a shot of orange liqueur poured on top, no salt.. has always been my go to drink of choice. i have no idea what the tequila is mixed with in bars tbh so i doubt i will be drinking it anymore going forward. =*(

                maybe i will have to join the red wine bangwagon after my whole30 is done
                yay!

                  For me it really depends on where I'm at when I drink. I do typically drink some beer here/there, but I also love some whiskey and bourbons. Good thing there are a couple of nicer upscale whiskey bars in the area, so I typically end up there.

                    I haven't been drinking much lately, because I've noticed that alcohol in the evening = very poor quality sleep.

                    I used to really like red wine, but even small amounts tend to give me headaches, so I tend to not drink it often. Plus, the cheaper wines tend to be part wine, part chemical cocktail.

                    Now, when I do drink, I have a really high quality absinthe. Aside from really liking the taste, it never gives me a headache or makes me feel like crap the next day, even if I have too much, likely because it's pure distilled alcohol that's flavored and colored with herbs, most of which are medicinal.

                      Red wine.
                      White wine.
                      Gin and soda water with a lime twist (tonic has added sugar).

                      If I drink I usually order a glass of water along with the drink and make sure I drink one for each alcoholic drink I consume. No headaches in the morning.

                          Thanks everyone. I'm welcoming my 30s so I think that definitely calls for some celebration.

                          I definitely don't drink beer because I hate the taste. I have never liked the taste of red wine either unless its cooked in tomato sauce. Yes I'm that girl that orders white wine at a pub

                          I will be going to a club and they jack up the price on every drink. Crazy!
