It’s Conscious Cocktail time!
We’ve just wrapped up another Conscious Cleanse and one thing we hear a lot of towards the end is that people are ready to enjoy an adult beverage!
Anyone ready for a little detox retox?
Giving up alcohol for two weeks is a big deal for many, especially if it’s something that’s habitually been a part of your lifestyle.
So how do you incorporate alcohol back into your diet and 80:20 lifestyle in the healthiest way possible?
This is where the Conscious Cocktail comes in!
A conscious cocktail is one that upgrades your usual alcoholic beverage to one that is allergen-free, spiked with a healthy dose of non-artificial sugar-free ingredients in your cocktail.
Today we’re featuring a twist on a recipe from our book. If you’re cleansing or simply don’t indulge in alcohol, try the cleanse-friendly version of this cocktail by simply omitting the vodka.
Need help finding a gluten-free vodka?
Try Blue Ice Potato Vodka or Ciroc Plain Vodka.
Happy Friday! We hope you have a glorious weekend.
