Technically no alcoholic beverages are paleo, but there are a few that are less harmful to your paleo diet/lifestyle if you do choose to continue drinking alcohol. I personally still drink despite paleo since it is part of the social and networking world that I belong to and I like to drink wine with dinner for its health benefits.
Vodka is one of the best paleo alcohols, if you get the right one.
Most vodkas are made from other non-paleo ingredients like wheat, corn, grain, and rye. Since vodka is a distilled spirits, and not brewed, the gluten should be non-existent in the final product, but you still have a risk of cross-contamination.
There are a few brands that make their vodka with paleo-friendly ingredients like coconut, potato, and grapes.
Final note – if you are going to drink vodka, watch your mixers as well. Mix with club soda, lime juice, or coconut water before something like tonic or sugary fruit juices.
