Over the last month I've attended several events in which I knew I would love a summer cocktail but wouldn't be able to drink anything the host was providing. With the 4th of July holiday weekend approaching I figured I would share my current favorite SCD legal summer cocktail recipe. After trying several recipes I have to thank Carrie Floyd over at Culinate Kitchen for posting the Kimmy drink because it is by far my favorite. I put an extra spin on the original recipe and made a party sized batch so I will put those measurements in quotes. The prep time is a bit more than usual because of the mint syrup but it's not as bad as the many summer cocktails that contain pounds of fresh fruit that need to be diced up. It has an awesome fresh taste that is somewhere between a gin and tonic and a mojito. The drink can also be made non-alcoholic by removing the gin and using extra club soda (non-flavored carbonated water).
In Part II we discussed SCD legal wine which is made through the process of fermentation. In this guide will examine SCD legal liquors which are drinkable liquids containing ethanol made by distilling fruits, grains or vegetables. If you missed Part I make sure you go back and re-read it to have a better understanding of how any alcohol affects your digestive system.
In Part I of this series we discussed alcohol’s effects on our digestive systems and I gave a listing of legal and Illegal alcohol types. Of the types of legal alcohols they can be broken down into wines and liquors. In this post we will learn all about wines and how someone on the SCD diet can identify which wines to drink to minimize damage to the digestive system.
Alcohol is a very controversial subject that has plenty of scientific studies that could be used to argue both sides until your blue in the face. I’m going to try and present as much of an unbiased look into the effects of alcohol on the digestive tract as possible and how that relates to the SCD Diet.
