When it comes to food allergies, alcohol isn’t something that is talked about as often as food. Other than the conversation about beer not being suitable for Celiacs or those with a gluten allergy…you don’t hear much about it otherwise.
I’m here to tell you about my FAVORITE cocktail.
Recently, I discovered the magic of a tequila with club soda and lime. I really enjoy simple cocktails that have little to preferably NO sugar.
| did you know that the body metabolizes alcohol as sugar and stores it directly to your fat storage? |
Altos Tequila, and the majority of tequila, is made directly from the nectar that comes from the agave plant. Altos is derived 100% blue agave. They distill the product in 100% copper stills. Then, they age the Resposado Tequila is aged in barrels that previously contained whiskey. (If you are worried about cross-contamination, I may recommend sticking with the Altos Tequila Plata.) As always, I highly recommend contacting the company directly if you have a concern about a specific allergen. Better safe than sorry 🙂
It has a great taste and I feel like you really appreciate the taste of tequila more when you mix it with club soda and lime. The lime brings out the flavor! It’s perfect for any season but amazing in the summer.
Sometimes, when you have a food allergy, it’s really hard to go out with friends and have a couple drinks. Liquor just isn’t something people think about! It’s best to do some research and have a couple go-to drinks that you know are safe! Stay tuned, because I’m going share a few of them in a future post!
