Best Alcoholic beverages?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created January 11, 2013 at 2:26 AM

So I am almost 23, just graduated college in May and have gone from being a party animal to eating paleo for the past 5 months and drinking once on a blue moon. Some of my friends are visiting this weekend and heck, I've been stressed out from work so I owe it to myself to enjoy a night of going out. Can you share with me what would be the best paleo drink choice? I heard alot about this NorCal Margarita, but was curious about vodka? Also, what are the best mixers? Any feedback would be great!

I didn't isolate the charcoal, but the stack worked.

Top shelf vodka. Neat.

*Some* ciders are high in sugar, just like some wines are. There are plenty of dry ciders around. Just like wine, you have to know if you're getting a sweet or a dry cider.

Ciders are dangerously high in sugar I've found unless you're brewing your own. I usually stick to wine, though also sugary, I find the benefits a bit weightier.

I think straight booze in whatever permutation is best. You can not really over-indulge when it's not mixed.....unless you're going crazy with shots. Plus anything but water or soda water is going to have a ton of sugar. I love single-malt Scotch and would never consider giving it up. Relax and enjoy.

Wine is my go to alcoholic beverage. Not sure if it paleo but at least it's gluten free.

Does using activated charcoal actually work? Any other side effects?

Hey, I'm the same age and certainly understand the need to go out and imbibe with friends.

Personally, I am partial to vodka and think it's the cleanest of all alcoholic beverages. Though I don't necessarily recommend going out and getting completely sh**faced, my experience is vodka is the only alcohol where one can do so and not spend the next day feeling like death. I certainly cannot say the same for either red wine or champagne- both give me terrible hangovers. Beer is fine, but it does a number on my intestines if I drink more than a couple.

So, I based upon my own rigorous field-testing, I say vodka is your best bet for when you plan on having more than 1 or 2 drinks with friends. I recommend choosing a brand that can consume neat or on the rocks so as to minimize empty calories. My opinion is that Kettle One, Stolichnaya, and Grey Goose are the best for drinking neat (and by best I simply mean the smoothest).

Hope that helps.

Good Irish whiskey, in moderation. Powers 12-year-old is quite nice, as well as Black Bush and Bushmill's 12-year-old.

Top shelf (read: CLEAN!!) vodka & water. Also, here's a link to Asprey's supplement protocol to minimize damage. If hangover (or lack thereof) is any indicator this regimen is a success...

The only thing I do differently is, because I use the charcoal, I kind of skimp on the other supplements as the night goes on. Seems like they'd be wasted.

Wine or cider make the most sense to me; as fermented fruit drinks, their origins have to be pretty ancient!

Apparently other animals eat/drink fermented fruit too.

im in the same boat, i've got social commitments a lot of the time... red wine and tequila with soda water and limes squeezed in are my go-tos. i just make sure that i don't get drunk enough to make bad dietary choices or a hangover, and it hasn't really hindered me too bad as long as i get back to paleo when i wake up.

Water. Water is the best drink ever. Besides that, if you do Primal Blueprint, Mark says red wine.
