OK, so really this question probably belongs on Chowhound or something, but what the heck.
Fans of craft beer have the concept of a “session beer” – a beer with a relatively low alcohol content, so you can sit around with your friends and drink 3 or 4 (i.e., “have a session”) without it being a big deal. (Many craft beers are a lot more alcoholic than you might expect, especially double IPAs and stuff, so you can see how this concept would arise.)
But see, I’ve mostly stopped drinking beer since the D. I have to bolus for it, and that’s just tricky given that the alcohol lowers you as well. I usually stick to liquor, or dry wine. But, obviously, straight liquor is decidedly NOT sessionable! And wine by the glass at bars often sucks.
So, what should be my go-to session drink at a bar? I’m gonna be watching basketball with some friends tonight. I’ve been going with vodka and seltzer with lime, but… it’s not really very good. I don’t like diet soda or tonic very much, at least not in large quantities. Anyone got any good d-mixed-drink recipes?
(You don’t need to warn me about drinking and hypoglycemia. I know all that and I know how my body reacts. Thanks.)
