If you enjoy partaking in alcoholic beverages, Conscious Cocktails can be a great addition to your 80:20 lifestyle so you can let loose and also (hopefully) avoid the hangover.
If you haven’t yet seen our new 80:20 Lifestyle Plan, you’ll want to come check it out for more recipes just like these!! We have loads more cocktails and other delicious foods you won’t find on the cleanse.
We love the 80:20 Lifestyle Plan because you can sign up anytime to get support for living a vibrant lifestyle all year long.
In case you haven’t joined us for Conscious Cocktail hour before and are wondering what the heck that means, let us fill you 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 and low-sugar ingredients.
This weekend we’re featuring a Jalapeño Strawberry Margarita. Its not too sweet and just a little spicy. Can you say yum!?
This cocktail would be a perfect pairing to our Zesty Lime Fish Tacos with Cucumber Radish Salsa. It combines all the goodness of Mexican-inspired cuisine without all of the food allergens like corn and nightshades!
Some of the cleanest brands of tequila that we like are Patron and Don Julio. If you’re curious about what other alcohols we recommend, be sure to check out our Conscious Cleanse Approved 80:20 Alcohol Guide so you can start upgrading your other favorite cocktails, too!
