My hubby and I just celebrated buying our first house (!!) and celebrated with some clean cocktails. In college, I was guilty of drinking sugar-laden mixed drinks and not fully understanding just how terrible they were for me. I used to love cranberry and vodka mixed drinks. “Cranberries are healthy!” thought 21-year-old Marisa. Little did I know that your typical cranberry juice is packed full of sugar and carbs and is the equivalent of drinking soda. Yuck. Today, I drink minimally, and when I do, they are clean and usually spike with some type of superfood, like kombucha. My new version of cranberry vodka is so much better than the traditional and way cleaner.
Talk to me about kombucha: If you aren’t familiar with kombucha, it is fermented tea and has a host of good-for-you benefits including, improved digestion, natural detoxification, increased energy and even cancer prevention. The teas fermented by bacteria and yeast commonly known as a “SCOBY” (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast), which is the home for the good-for-your gut bacteria and yeast.
No recipe to this, just two simple ingredients: 1 ounce Vodka + 3 ounce GT’s Cosmic Cranberry Kombucha over ice. Ta da!
