    Re: Drinks - Alcoholic and Non-Alcoholic

    Here is a list of The World's 4 Healthiest Cocktails.
    Add one or all 4 to your list next time you order and your bound to have some fun.
    If you're just going for the buzz, you might as well get some benefits right?

    1.The Rabbit Hole
    3 oz fresh carrot juice
    1/2 oz fresh cucumber juice
    1/2 oz Cynar, an italian herbal liqeuer
    1 oz organic vodka
    1 sprig sage
    Combine the liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a cocktail glass. Top with the sage sprig.

    The Benefit: Lutein, which is found in carrots, can reduce your risk of cancer, says an American Journal of Clinical Nutrition study.

    2.Pepper Delicious
    3 red bell pepper slices
    6-8 fresh mint leaves
    2 oz gin
    1 oz fresh lime juice
    3/4 oz simple syrup
    (equal parts sugar and water)
    In a shaker glass, combine 2 red pepper rings and the mint leaves and press firmly with a muddler to pulverize the peppers. Add the gin, lime juice, syrup, and ice. Shake and strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with the remaining pepper ring.

    The Benefit: A diet high in vitamin C, carotenoids, and lycopene (all of which are amply supplied in red peppers) reduces the incidence of chronic disease and death, according to a Spanish study of 41,000 people.


    3.Beet Sangria
    4 oz sugar
    Pinch of salt
    11 oz beet juice
    1 oz fresh lime jiuce
    3 oz fresh OJ
    3 oz ginger beer (or ale)
    8 oz red wine
    6 oz brandy
    1 oz Cointreau or other orange liqeuer
    Dissolve the sugar and salt into the nonalcoholic ingredients. Add the alcohol and stir.

    The Benefit: Folate in beets has been shown to lower the risk of coronary artery disease.


    4.Avocado Daiquiri
    4 oz rum
    (a mix of gold and silver is best)
    1/4 medium-ripe avocado
    1/2 oz half-and-half
    1/4 oz fresh lemon or lime juice
    2 oz simple syrup
    (equal parts sugar and water)
    1 1/2 cups ice cubes
    Combine the ingredients and blend until smooth.

    The Benefit: Researchers at Ohio State University have determined that avocados protect against heart disease.

    STRAWBERRY SHOTS

    Box of large Strawberries
    1 cup and 1/2 lemon lime Mix (BOIL 1 CUP)
    Tequila or not
    Tripe Sec or not
    Strawberry Flavored Jell-O
    Sugar and Limes
    Cut bottom of strawberry flat, scoop out center, add the following mixture and freeze for up to 4 hours. Take out, dip strawberries in the extra lemon lime mix and then sugar. Garnish with lemon or lime. Margarita's in the center is also good!

    If you don't want the alcohol, just 1 cup lemon lime mix boiling, add the jello until dissolved.
    chocolate ice cream in the middle and then when set, drizzle with chocolate syrup.

    Love my strawberries!!

    Ingredients:

    3 cups quartered strawberries (about a quart of berries*)
    1 cup cold water
    1 can (6 ounces) frozen lemonade concentrate
    2 cups chilled sparkling water (divided)
    Whole strawberries for garnish

    Hot Pumpkin Mug, Spiced
    vegan, serves 1

    1 cup non-dairy milk (soy or almond works best)
    1 1/2-2 Tbsp pure pumpkin puree, unsweetened (I used organic/canned/BPA-free liner can)
    1/4 tsp ginger powder
    1/4 tsp cinnamon
    pinch of salt
    2-3 drops vanilla extract (or a few pinches of real vanilla bean pod seeds for an extra special flavor)
    1 tsp maple syrup, grade B
    For extra spicy, add:
    2 dashes cayenne
    1 pinch fine black pepper

    On top: coconut whip or soy whip (optional)

    Directions:

    1. Add all ingredients except the maple syrup to a blender. Blend on low until smoothed out a bit - a few chunks of pumpkin may remain.
    2. Pour into a small sauce pot. Bring to a boil and then reduce to medium and allow to simmer until any tiny clumps of pumpkin melt into the hot liquid. Simmer for about 2-4 minutes.
    3. Transfer the mixture back into the blender, add the maple syrup and blend again on low until frothy.
    4. Pour into serving mug and top with optional whip and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

    Serve warm and steamy. To quickly reheat or re-warm, a few seconds in the microwave can do it.
