A strawberry mojito cocktail is naturally gluten free and can be made with alcohol or virgin style (without alcohol). It is a very refreshing drink. You can use seltzer water or club soda, whichever you prefer or have on hand. It’s the perfect summer cocktail and makes a beautiful presentation for guests.

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day and our partly Irish heritage, I hope you enjoy this gluten free Irish coffee recipe. Though Irish coffee is traditionally served with Irish whiskey, per the 2014 interim labeling rules, alcohol made from gluten grains should not be labeled gluten free. You can use sorghum whiskey, but vodka will do in a pinch. In addition, traditional Irish coffee is topped with either cream on or softened whipped cream. I chose stiff whipped cream, instead, as I believe it makes for a nicer presentation. Happy St. Patty’s Day to you all! (clink!) Continue reading “Irish Coffee (Naturally Gluten Free)”
Below I list several different versions of flambe gluten free cocktails. The meaning of flambe is to add alcohol and ignite. Though alcohol is distilled which means that any gluten content should be removed, some people who are more intolerable to gluten than others may have a reaction to some alcohol. Use alcohol that you feel safe consuming. Meanwhile, enjoy this dessert-like cocktail whether you serve it as a coffee or as a liqueur. It makes a nice presentation for special occasions. I’m thinking New Year’s Eve, whether it be just the two of you, or for a party. Continue reading “Gluten Free Cocktails Flambe”

I had never tasted a sugar free eggnog recipe before today, but the holidays are almost upon us and who cannot resist all of that sugar, dairy, chocolate, what have you? I certainly have trouble doing so! I do not have eggnog very often, but when I do, I just cannot seem to stop myself from having a second glass. Heaven knows if we have a holiday dinner and there is left over eggnog, I’m having it for breakfast instead of my healthy protein shake. This year, I just had to get a hold of myself prior to the holidays. This is what inspired me to come up with this sugar free eggnog recipe.
You can double, triple, etc. as needed.
I thought some of my readers would find a gluten free rice milk recipe useful. It may be sweetened with your choice of sweetener or left unsweetened. Make it sugar-free by using stevia. I used xylitol in mine. You can use pure maple syrup, molasses, or during the blending process use a few dates. (However, using dates will darken the color.) Continue reading “Homemade Gluten Free Rice Milk Recipe”
I am crazy for a fresh anything, but this fresh honeydew melon martini is a real treat! I’ve tried a fresh watermelon martini, but this is great, too! Since I’m allergic to citrus I couldn’t add any lemon or lime juice to mine, but it will definitely give it a good flavor. I’d prefer lemon juice myself. Others add triple sec (a mixture of bitters and sweet oranges), but this recipe for a fresh honeydew melon martini did me just fine! Very chilled and frothy on top. I’ve also included a link to gluten-free vodka brands. Enjoy! Continue reading “Fresh Honeydew Melon Martini (Gluten-Free)”
On a gluten-free diet? This gluten free beer list should come in haindy for you. Beer is normally brewed with barley, something which celiacs and those with gluten-intolerance cannot consume. However, there are gluten-free beers on the market that actually tastes very similar to regular beer. Some are malted and others are not. Brewers can use either rice, sorghum, buckwheat or corn instead of barley. Sorghum and buckwheat are the most used. What you should be aware oHambleton f is that some manufacturers use barley. They state that the barley disappears during brewing, and when tested for gluten it measures up to the other gluten-free beers. Below you will find my gluten free beer list with descriptions. If you cannot find any of these brands in your area, check out the homemade gluten free brew kits. Mugs up! – chilled of course! Continue reading “Gluten Free Beer List”
