No cheap alcohol. Good alcohol.
There are more GF beers... Widmers Omission... Sprechers... New Grist... Fox Tail... St. Peter's Sorghum Beer...
I just haven't managed to try them ALL... yet.
While I do like the occasional shot.
Shots would be intensely irritating to your gums I would think with the alcohol concentration.
And I think there is something to be said for sipping on a nice cold tall drink too.
Have you tried ciders?
Or at least cut the strength of the liquor with soda like you said.
Good old rum and coke! Or 7&7... LOL
