Wine does that to me too. Well to be honest just about everything alcholic gives me that burning feeling! From memory (and I'm clutching here cause I haven't had a drink in about 7 years) I think vodka is relatively safe if you really need to drink on the night. Otherwise there are plently of non alcoholic cocktails that look just like alcohol
Good luck and I hope you have a great IBS free night!

I can't offer any advice on beverage choices, but I can wish you a enjoyable, relaxing night out for the party. I've been invited to 3 so far from different builders that I do work for,and won't be attending any, just don't want to chance it. Have fun and enjoy yourself

Beer always works for me. Wine or anything sugary causes problems for me.Something not fizzy but drinkable.. hmm...I may suggest a vodka drink. I think a good vodka has the least amount of "impurities". What to mix it with is another thing... maybe you could try a martini?What also works for me is scotch. I enjoy drinking Rob Roy's (basically a "scotch martiti" or a Manhatten with scotch instead of whiskey). This is scotch, vermuth, and bitters. The bitters are actually also an old rememdy for sore tummies.
Not too much vermuth, as it's really just strong wine.
There's also scotch and water which I love. A twist of lime will also help. The more the ice melts, the better they taste. For this I prefer a good single malt scotch, but any decent blended scotch (Teacher's Highland Cream is my favorite blended scotch) will do.Sip slowly, and have a great time! We have our party on Saturday. I'm bringing all the left over Margarita ingredients from Thanksgiving (I froze the mix as ice cubes!) I don't drink them, but we have one of those Magic Bullet blenders and they are so awesome for margaritas and other treats. They really do work as well as shown on TV! And my brother who is a bartender gave me his recipe which people love!

A lot people I've spoken to have found white wine gives them a lot of acid and reflux but red wine is okay and being high in anti oxidants it's one of the less bad for you drinks.If you can tolerate dairy then maybe lining your stomach with a pint of milk or some probiotic yoghurt would help.
Maybe a weaker 7 and 7's with ginger ale?7up or ginger ale can sometimes be better on the gut."GingerThe ginger used medicinally is from the root of the ginger plant, Zingiber officinale. Many of its properties and uses are described in the herbal literature. Recently, ginger root has received some medical attention as being useful in treating nausea and motion sickness. Ginger capsules or a cup of ginger root tea seems to allay nausea. Ginger has also been helpful for the nausea of pregnancy. Ginger root in general seems to be a digestive stimulant and is used to improve weak digestion. A warm cup of tea made by boiling a few slices of root in a cup or two of water can be drunk about 30 minutes before meals. Ginger is also a diaphoretic (it causes sweating), and it seems to help in circulation and in warming the body when we feel cold, as can happen in winter. There is some preliminary research evidence that ginger acts as an antioxidant and that it can help lower cholesterol and prevent cardiovascular disease. It also inhibits platelet aggregation, a factor contributing to atherosclerosis and clotting problems. Ginger is both an energy and circulatory stimulant. Ginger root tea is also used as a compress for sore muscles or congested areas of the body. This is a common macrobiotic therapy. Ginger root can be used in cooking, too, or as a tea with other herbs. It is a very helpful and safe herb. For improving body heat, one or two capsules of ginger root powder can be taken once or twice a day for about a month. Cayenne pepper can also be used in this way."alcohol though can cause osmotic diarrhea.

Hi, Dru.I do what I can at parties!
I avoid the rich foods (or too much of them), stick with what I know works, and drink LOTS of beer since it doesn't seem to bother me, put me at ease, even the next day (although the hangover itself is never fun).I usually host Thanksgiving and do most of the cooking, or oversee that which I don't cook. My wife doesn't cook anyhow, and I enjoy cooking.
It gives me control over what goes in the food.
I normally start out at 11:30-noon with a Rob Roy... right before eating. Then beer.. until I slumber.
I don't get drunk.. jet get the buzz.. and hold it all day.
This is on Thanksgiving BTW, not every day... lolNot sure what else I can share... I guess I just use my best judgement when it comes to holiday parties and food. If there's bread and meat... I eat that. If there's nothing at all, someone always has a jar of peanut butter or oatmeal I can chow on.
