Liquor and other fun things

I mostly attribute the invention of beer and wine to neolithic man, but is there a list of Paleo-friendly adult beverages?

Doesn't other stuff, which are not alcohol and without the downsides of this drug, give the same benefits you get from alcohol in moderation. Quoting from Clint's link(http://www.marksdailyapple.com/low-carb-alcohol/): "We can likely obtain the same vascular benefits from fish oil and a low carb, high antioxidant diet" and "Alcohol doesn’t offer anything you can’t gain from a healthy Primal Blueprint diet" I'm by no means an expert, but as far as I know alcohol is poison, although with some benefits while taken with moderation, but substitutable. Not worth the risk I'd say.

True, but all work and no drink makes Jack a dull boy. Not to mention the health benefits of drinks in moderation, I think it also helps with keeping an even keel and releasing the stressors of everyday life, which leads to a long life, no?

We can't keep up with the deadfall in our backyard, so every fall our dog does this.

I drink primarily cider and whiskey, with an occasional glass of wine. I tend to go for the drier cider like Adam Crafter,along with drier wines. Even though whiskey has origins in grain fermentation, the grain proteins don't get distilled along with the alcohol, so you don't have to worry about that. There might be trace amounts that somehow got distilled along with the alcohol,but I'm pretty sure they would have to be at an incredibly low concentration.

Otherwise there's also brandy, apple brandy being one of my favorites.

The whole reason that I drink hard liquor, is that I don't have to worry about sugars and other things present, as compared to cider/wine. Although I don't know how much of a difference it makes.

I love hard cider, the dryer it is, the less sugar it has.

Alcohol is bad for you. Don't drink it :)

Paleo is a diet aimed on health after all, right?
