A Gluten-free New Year’s Eve

Whether attending a fabulous party, on designated driver duty or hosting an end-of-the year bash, New Year’s Eve is a trying time for those living a gluten-free lifestyle. Temptation – in the form of cold beer, delicious cocktails and scrumptious appetizers – is lurking around every corner. But a gluten-free New Year’s Eve doesn't equal a boring one! We are here to help you ring in the New Year on a happy and healthy note:

For the Party Goers
  • Happy New ‘Beer’! If cocktails aren’t your thing, try a gluten-free craft brew. Find some great options here 
  • Rum, tequila and gluten-free vodka are typically safe for partygoers on g-free diets. If you would like a more comprehensive list, click here 
  • Champagne is gluten-free, so break out the bubbly and toast to a g-free new year!

For the Designated Drivers
  • Designated driver? Enjoy a non-alcoholic, g-free cocktail – we like this festive choice 
  • If you are the designated driver, be aware that there may be trace amounts of gluten lurking in some sodas – choose carefully! Get more information on g-free soda here 
  • As the designated driver, you may need a caffeine boost! Your safest option is to brew your own coffee, and take it to go. For more details on g-free coffee, click here 

For the Host  
  • If you are serving a signature cocktail, ensure that not only the alcohol is g-free but also the soda, juice and other mixers.
  • Stay away from pre-made dip mixes. Play it safe with a homemade dip and fresh veggies or a goat-cheese ball and g-free crackers. Here are a few delectable dips 
  • Host a BYOB celebration to avoid serving any unsafe alcoholic beverages to your g-free guests.

Wishing you all a very happy and healthy New Year!
