I usualy have a few drinks on friday nights after a long work week. Last night I had a few Ceasers: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caesar_(cocktail). Similar to a bloody mary and very popular here in Canada. Anyway, I recently started a continuous kombucha brew and last night I added a couple of ounces of it into my drink. It didn't really change the taste much and I may start adding it evertime. Does anyone else add fermented beverages,(kombucha, kefir, kvass) with alcohol? Do you think it may be beneficial while drinking alcohol seeing as it's already slightly alcoholic?

I dont' add alcohol but I add some carbonated mineral water to dilute my kombucha, which is way too strong. I used to drink kombucha straight but it tastes so much better whem mixed with some fizz.

This is purely anecdotal but when I was visiting my sister once she made a cocktail with some of my kombucha thinking it was some other mixer and said it was the first time in a long time she hadn't had a hangover from drinking.

Some vodkas are grain-free/gluten-free (Ciroc is made from grapes). Some Tequila is ok, too. Vodka/Tequila/red wine.

Alternative option: kombucha beer, made in Ypsilanti, MI where I work.

In the past, I've used my homemade water kefir as a chaser before to make myself feel better about drinking alcohol.
But then I thought....hmm..what if I just bring this to parties and pretend like its alcohol?? And then not feel bad about not drinking? And it worked! It smelled enough like alchy for me to convince others I was getting just as smashed as they were :) So that's hopefully a novel strategy for those struggling to balance partying and paleo!

@VB Just felt I need to chime in that your post is completely non helpful and slightly rude. If I wasn't on a Paleo forum I would have taken you for a Vegan. Is it just me or as time goes on more and more judgmental and "elitest" rhetoric is popping up in these forums.
Sorry for the rant, might have had one too many tasty blueberry kombucha's and vodka's. Thanks for the great idea missionman!
