I had my first small Margarita in 13 years. My friend is the bartender at this very nice restaurant we tend to eat on once a week. He looked at me like I was completely crazy tonight when I ordered a margarita, he’s like Kevin I thought you are allergic to alcohol, I said well I’ve never really found out how I would react, that everyone with my illness reacts differently. So I check the ingredients of the margarita mix it had preservatives so he made my margarita from scratch, poured in the tequila and rounded the glass off with some salt. Now understand I only had him make me a small margarita no sense in going over the top on my first attempt drinking my first alcoholic drink in 13 years. I sipped it lightly at first waited several minutes between each drink, so far nothing. It’s been 3 hours and no reaction what’s so ever.
My friends and wife could not believe how excited I was about drinking a mixed drink, then again they haven’t gone 13 years either. So what I learned is possibly I can drink but I still need to be on guard and drink moderately no need in overdoing it. It really felt nice to be able to go to dinner with my friends sit down with everyone and order a margarita with the rest of them even if I only ordered one about half the size and wound up only drinking about half of it. I almost forgot I honestly felt like I had a very slight buzz! J
