Alcohol can cause inflammation in the gut, but some drinks are worse than overs. If you’d still like to enjoy a tipple this season, then here are the best options.
Carla Daunton, Head Distiller from Young Henrys, explained why beer and wine should be omitted from the festivities menu.
“Bloating can be caused from the carbonation in beer being released,” she said.
As for wine, the gut reacts with its “sugars”. However, the distillation process “removed this from the equation”.
A cranberry margarita
Get into the festive spirit with a red and green cocktail that is easier on the gut than beer or wine.
For this recipe, “lemon-lime soda” (a carbonated beverage) is part of the ingredients list.
However, the quantity of soda is much less than a standard tequila and soda.
Damn Delicious share their cranberry margarita recipe:
- 3/4 cup tequila
- 2 cups cranberry juice
- 1 cup lemon-lime soda
- Mint leaves, for garnish
Filling up on booze isn’t the only way you could end up with a bloated tummy.
Eating too quickly, sucking on hard candy, and tucking into fatty foods can all contribute to that bloated feeling.
After a delicious slap-up feast, Healthline suggests taking a nice walk to help reduce bloating.
