    I don't have a problem with beer - which is incrediby lucky (I am a huge beer fan). I drank two pints of Schafly's Coffee Stout Tuesday night and last night, and feel fine today. I just don't try to keep up with my friends anymore. I do tend to have a little more frequency with American light lagers (Budweiser, Miller Lite, stuff like that), but not much more so than the average person would get by drinking beer (alcohol is a diuretic). I haven't gotten any pain or burning from it, though.

    I will say, if you're dead set on being able to have one drink with your girlfriends, then maybe you should try something first in the comfort of your own home. A lot of liquor stores here, at least, sell the single bottles of pretty much anything they have in six-packs, from big American macro-brews like Coors to imports like Guinness or microbrews like Schlafly's. I've read a couple of people here who have said they do ok with one or two beers of they add a pinch of salt to kill the carbonation.

    As far as other drinks go, some have reported they've had luck with unflavored rum (or also coconut sometimes) like miz_sunshine87. Other people say they can have a glass of desert wine, like maybe a port. I haven't tried it, but I might pick up a bottle of honey mead this weekend.

    The thing to remember is, some of us have a much higher tolerance for a variety of foods than others, and anything new you try you should do so with caution. Your reaction is individual to you, and a lot of people here cannot tolerate alcohol at all. In that case, maybe you could try a virgin pina colada (not typical pub fare, but hey, maybe they have a blender). Also, until recently, if I thought I might have a drink or two, I would make sure I popped three tums before and after.

    p.s

    I don't know where you live in Canada, but if you're close to a border you can pick it up in any U.S city.

    I'm about 2 hrs away from Buffalo NY, so I got mine there. I can't really say wether or not the stuff works though. I've totally fallen off the bandwagon with the diet, and yes I feel worse, but I'm not entirely sure what is doing it!

    lori,

    okay so no alcohol is really IC safe, but probably the best is something straight (without mixers). So if you like doing shots, you can give some of those a try. Something a bit milder to try might be coconut rum, or vanilla vodka. I also like sambucca (Italian liquorice flavored alcohol). Its very warming, but doesn't burn too much, however most people I know can't stand the stuff!

    Oddly enough, alcohol hasn't bothered me that much. Vinegar is the only thing that I KNOW will really flare me.

    Oh and needless to say, unless you want to spend the whole night in the bathroom, beer is out of the question!

    I like to make a:

    malibu rum (the kind with natural coconut flavors not pinneapple) and vanilla ice cream smoothie
    *blend together milk, ice cream, and rum and enjoy

    *I take 2 or 3 tums prior to drinking rum

    also there is also low acid apple and pear juice in the baby isle
    someone else mentioned white hot chocolate

    milk should be okay

    I drink ginger tea.. I make it myself though.. I buy the fresh ginger root.. cut a chunk of it.. drop it in the cup add some sugar to taste and poor hot water over it.. I love it and have several cups a day.. suppose to have a soothing and ani inflamitory factor to it.. I do notice it helps my tummy if anything

    Thanks for the idea's. I got paid today when i get off work I will go to the store and look. I have tried kool-aid It is ok with my IC. It is odd thought when I drink it my endometritis seems to really hurt. I dont know why but it does. I will try to 7-up. I cant bring myself to drink root beer I have never been a fan of it. I can actually only tolerate Aquafina and deer park water. Which i think is odd that it is the only water. I drank some Dasani it was awful i flared so bad.

    Jess, some people do well with white soda like 7up and etc., but if you haven't try it yet, be very cautious. The white soda sets off major flares and pain for me. Anything you are not for sure of, try little of it first.

    Sending hugs, Trishann

    How about blueberry or pear juice--it's called "just blueberry" or "just Pear",
    Iced camomile tea, or just plain honey and hot/warm water with a little cinnamon or clove. I love the just blueberry and pear juice when I get sick of water.

    Good luck!
