like a cocktail or two? but worried about the vegan-ity of your beverage?!? check out barnivore.com for an extensive listing of vegan beers, wines and spirits! what about if i'm out on the town?? well... there are a number of great (and free - yay!) vegan iphone apps that will help you out of this little pickle! my favourites are veganiseasy and ivegan (available in the app store)
speaking spirits you're generally somewhat safer than the beers and wines, which may use isinglass, gelatin, egg white or milk products to refine the final products.
isinglass for those of you who aren't all up on the vegan-lingo is a substance obtained from the dried swim bladders of fish (basically a form of collagen, which is a type of connective tissue)
creamy spirits, on the other hand, are not going to fall with the vegan-friendly category - including your bailey's irish cream or amarula cream liqueur
