    I have definitely noticed that my alcohol sensitivity has increased. So I'd shoot for beer (less total alcohol).

    Ah, the gluten always gets me in beer. Ugh. Feel bloated for days.

    If I want something with beer level alcohol though, a good hard cider (and John Adams drank a pint a day for BREAKFAST) is nice and refreshing and doesn't give me the bloat.

    There is no more total alcohol in a glass of wine, glass of beer or shot depending on volume of course.

    Gin and tonic, I like a generous squeeze of lime <3

    I drink cider pretty often too. Try to find the driest one possible.

    But it's more diluted so it's easier to drink the wine too fast.

    I would think the opposite. Beer requires a lot of volume to get to the same level of alcohol as from a few shots of something hard. Same for wine. Eventually that volume will fill you up and you simply wouldn't be able to fit more in, even if you weren't "drunk" just yet.

    I mean... How quickly can you knock back four or five shots, and then change that to four or five beers. Bet it takes ya longer! Even if you chug 'em.

    i sell wine so don't always want to drink it at the end of the day.

    i do best with vodka or tequila but when it's cold outside will occasionally have scotch or bourbon.

    whatever route you go, be sure to have plenty of protein BEFORE the booze.

    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
