A Clean Ginger Cocktail Recipe
As you all know by now, I’ve joined the healthy lifestyle fanatics, the paleo pushers and the clean eating crusaders. And now that I have wellness on the brain it spills over into every aspect of my life from food and drink to home and skincare products.
Since I try and put the highest quality food that I can in my body, the same goes for beverages (most of the time). I’m not a glass of wine every night kind of girl anymore, but if I am going to indulge a little I try to skip the sugary syrups and opt for a simpler cocktail and cleaner beer or wine.
I’m obsessed with probiotic-filled kombucha these days (GTS Gingerade is my favorite brand and flavor) and I’ve discovered it makes for a great cocktail mixer.
Ingredients + Directions
Mix half a bottle of ginger kombucha with one ounce of Tito’s vodka (made from corn not wheat so it’s gluten free), a slice of lime and fresh ginger for garnish and you’ve got a pretty tasty and clean cocktail!
I’d been trying different kombucha flavors as mixers and I stumbled upon a podcast with Dr. Justin Marchegiani and my favorite podcaster, Abel James, who also uses ginger kombucha and Tito’s vodka. Dr. Marchegiani calls it the Clean Mule. How clever, I should have thought of that :)
Another tip for curbing your alcohol consumption, especially at parties, is to mix sparkling water (I love to use a fruit flavored La Croix) with a dry prosecco or champagne. This way you’re cutting down your amount of alcohol per glass by almost half!
