There are some alcohol's that my body reacts really strangely to.
Last night after Dylan's birthday party, I took Dylan (with Mary and Melissa) to our favorite mexican restaurant and decided to have a strawberry margarita. I got like a medium sized one (just a good size.. not small and certainly not huge) within about 4 drinks of the margarita, my entire body itched, my face was fire engine red, and my lips felt like they were swelling. I didn't feel good at all. I asked the waiter to take the drink and toss it because I was so ill from it (he then took it off the bill because I was so ill- which I didn't expect at all. that was an $8 drink!)
I drank about 2 glasses of water to try to flush my system, but was just ill the rest of the night.
I notice that some beers do this to me as well, and the last time I had a margarita I reacted similarly, but not nearly as bad.
Do you think this is a true allergy? Is there a way to possibly get tested??
