I am overwhelmed.
Overwhelmed because of YOU.
Your support & comments made me cry on my post about jaw surgery. I’m not a habitual crier but you guys are all so AMAZING that I kind of broke down. I have a LONG road to recovery but with all my ‘friends’ online & family, I know I’ll be just fine. So thank you all. Seriously, really, thank, thank, thank you!
Ok, enough about that, let’s talk about probiotic cocktails.
YES. You read that correctly.
Cocktails with probiotics.
If that’s not cool, I don’t know what is?
Fourth of July is on Saturday obviously ( & if you don’t live in the US, you should still try these & celebrate…because it’s the weekend, mkay ). Bring these cocktails to a pool party & everyone will want to be your best friend.
Plus you’ll be drinking…healthy-ishly. Kombucha is full of good bacteria AKA probiotics AKA those weird slippery things at the bottom.
Some benefits of Kombucha according to this source:
♥ liver detoxification
♥ improved pancreas function
♥ increased energy
♥ better digestion
♥ improved mood ( helps with anxiety/depression )
♥ kills Candida ( yeast )
♥ helps nutrient assimilation
♥ weight loss
O M GEE, RIGHT.
Here’s what you do:
Need more of a breakdown? No problem:
♡ TSC Mint Kombucha Vodkas:
1-2 ounces of vodka ( I like gluten-free Tito’s )
A couple splashes of sparkling water
A couple of splashes of Kombucha ( guava is amazing )
Fresh mint ( I like A LOT )
Grapefruit bitters ( if you don’t have this, use a squeeze of lemon )
Handful of ice
Directions: add ice to a chilled glass. Add vodka & top with a little sparkling water. Add 1/2 cup of your favorite Kombucha on top. Grab mint & clap it between your hands ( << this brings out the flavor ). Use mint as a garnish & mix it into the cocktail. Top with a couple dashes of grapefruit bitters ( or lemon ) & shave some ginger on top ( use a cheese grater to shave ginger! ). Option: add raspberries for a festive flair. CHEERS!
Mixing Kombucha with alcohol kind of cancels the bad stuff out, right?
No but really, at least I’m getting my probiotics when I have a little cocktail-poo.
If you want to get crazy, go buy a huge pitcher & make this in bulk. I feel like you might as well for a holiday like 4th of July because you’re most likely distracted by the pool, boys, cute flamingo floats, &/or the BBQ. Just make sure you store it in the fridge so it’s super cold…YUM.
I can already picture you guys in your cute bikinis, mingling around the pool/beach sipping mint kombucha vodka in a sexy wide brimmed hat.
JEALOUS AS I’LL BE BED RIDDEN WATCHING GREY’S ANATOMY.
Have a sip for me, k?
Anyway, one last question before I go: what’s a cocktail that you want to see skinny style? LMK below & I’ll make it happen.
Ok, have fun this weekend & happy summer!!
love you all, xx lauryn
