I have an interesting situation with boozes. I found out years ago that gin, even really good gin will give me a headache within an hour of drinking it. And I found out why. If I touch a Juniper bush I get little itching bumps. Guess what is in Gin?? Juniper berries. I have searched thru many vodkas trying to find one I could have a second drink of without feeling drunk & hungover withing 2 or 3 hours. I even tried a polish vodka made from potatoes, that worked for a while but in time it gave me a headache. I had always tried to have a clear drink thinking they were lowest in carbs & calories. Now I notice that most of the vodkas are made from(are ya ready for this?) Grain Spirits or Grain Neutral spirits ......that's not primal/paleo. And apparently my body doesn't like them.
Then last week I tried some of hubbys brandy on the rocks. No bad effects. Hmmmmm, what is brandy made from?? Distilled grapes, how interesting, that is on the primal/paleo list. Yes I know I could stop drinking, but that afternoon cocktail is so relaxing, in either the pool or the hot tub.
What think ye about the ingredient lists of particular boozes???
