The New Year is in full swing, which means invites to celebrations that most likely involve alcohol. In order to be safe and stay educated, I've compiled a handy guide of alcohol that contains nut ingredients. We're talking beer, brandy, gin, liqueurs, rum, vodka, and whiskey.

Another little known fact is that spirits aren't regulated by the FDA, which means they fall under the jurisdiction of the Department of the Treasury's Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau which doesn't have the same labeling requirements as the FDA. Please use this list as a guide, but always make sure to never consume anything you don't feel comfortable about. Read more at: http://theallergyfreewife.com/alcoholwithnuts/
