Gluten Free Mondays 10% Off at Cheeseburger in Paradise Fishers .... Drink Blog....... Drink Specials


Gluten Free Drink Blog
Most of us on the gluten- free diet know that regular beer is not gluten free. More and more beer companies are coming up with gluten-free beer options. Angry Orchard makes a gluten-free ale that you can now get on tap at Cheeseburger In Paradise. If beer is your choice they also offer Redbridge gluten-free beer.
Science tells us that many grain alcohols are gluten free because most alcohols like Vodkas, gins and whiskeys that may be grain based are distilled. During the distillation process the gluten molecule is too large to pass through, which makes it safe for those of us that are gluten intolerant. To read more about gluten free alcohols, here’s a link to Triumph Dining:
We understand that there are those out there on the gluten-free diet that are sensitive to grain based alcohols. We sympathize with you and this blog is in no way intended to encourage you to indulge in something that makes you ill.
At C.I.P we sampled some drinks that were gluten free.  We sourced the manufacturer alcoholic beverage companies to make sure that the ingredients contained in each of the alcoholic drinks we tried were gluten free. Please understand that ingredients are subject to change at any time. All the info you see below was updated to May, 2013.  Our last  C.I.P food blog, the Sweet Fire Chicken Sandwich is not listed on the gluten free menu as the sauce is no longer gluten free.  Dining Blog:
C.I.P is glad to be able to accommodate our gluten-free community….they will be having

*All glassware is washed and sanitized. They do rinse out containers used to mix drinks with club soda. Mixed drinks that contain regular beer are used in separate mixing containers. Anything used in a shaker tin is generally gluten free. Make sure you check with management and the bartender to validate how drinks are prepared.
Here are the main ingredients used in the drinks we tried;
Bacardi Torched Cherry Rum: Taste of Barbados Cherries with a light infusion of torched plant Aloe.

Light, crisp and slightly sweet, we all enjoyed a sample of this fruity ale. 
Redbridge Gluten-Free Beer: This gluten-free beer is offered by the bottle at C.I.P.
Blackberry Sangria: This drink was one of our fave’s. It was light and fruity and did not have a strong alcoholic taste. Made with Simply Naked Chardonnay, fresh squeezed lemon juice and blackberry then topped with Fresca.
C.I.P Cocktail: Made with layers of Frozen Sangria, Margaritaville Tequila Margarita, Strawberry Daiquiri, Coruba Coconut Rum Pina Colada topped with a float of blue curacao.  This drink is refreshing, sweet and tart, and one of our faves! 
Classic Margarita: Made with Margaritaville Gold Tequila and triple sec with a blend of fresh citrus juices, can be made frozen or on the rocks.  If you are looking for a strong margarita without being overpowering, you will love this drink!
Electric Lizard: Coruba Coconut Rum and Midori Melon liqueur mixed with lime juice, sweet and sour and Sprite.  For those who like a stronger drink, this would be your choice. 
Euphoria:  Frozen sangria, Margarita and Strawberry Daiquiri layers garnished with Lizard lips.  We liked this Margarita.... very tropical!
Lady of the Sea: Layers of Frozen Sangria, Pina Colada and Strawberry Daiquiri garnished with Penelope Parrot. If you prefer the taste of a sweeter drink with a smoothie vibe this is your drink. 
Pictured together below:  Pomegranate Mojito: Not listed C.I.P’s drink menu. You can still request this drink.  It is a light, refreshing with a hint of fruit drink that tastes great.  
South Beach Mojito: Cruzan Mango Rum and X-rated Fusion Liqueur shaken with orange juice, limes and mint leaves topped with club soda.  We loved this drink for it's light and citrusy taste.
World Famous Pina Colada:  C.I.P’s signature Pina Colada recipe topped with Cruzan Aged Dark Rum. If you like Pina Colada's this is an excellent choice!
Strawberry Daiquiri: Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum blended with fresh strawberries and natural lime juice garnished with Berry Beth.  The rich strawberry taste made us fall in love with this fruity drink!
Torched Cherry Pina Colada: Layers of frozen strawberry and Pina Colada topped with a Bacardi Torched Cherry Rum float.  This is a drink we would order again.  It was tart and sweet with a tropical twist!
