ELXR cold-pressed juice cocktails
Don't get me wrong, I like drinking just as much as the next person, but what I don't always love is all the crap that goes into cocktails. When I say crap, I'm referring to all the syrups and juices. Compromise? Fresh cold-pressed juice cocktails. Cheers to the frikin' long weekend!
I've highlighted a couple of my favourite ELXR juices and created three cocktails that are simple, fresh and easy to make (read: I'm so f*cking lazy, but also want to drink something delicious)!
This ruby coloured cold-pressed juice contains apple, hibiscus flower infusion, chia, lemon and ginger.
- 8 oz Hibiscus Fresca
- 1 oz vodka
- 1/2 lime, juiced
- 5 muddled raspberries
- optional: lime wedge on the rim
This detoxifying number contains alkaline water, lemon, maple syrup and liquid cayenne. It's just how I like my man: sweet & sour with a hint of spice.
- 8 oz Toxic Flush
- 1 oz light rum
- brown sugar & cinnamon (for the rim y'all!)
- optional: candied ginger
This green juice has cucumber, Granny Smith apple, kale, parsley, spinach, lemon, ginger.
- 8 oz Second Base
- 1 oz gin
- mint leaves
Verdict: making delicious not-too-sweet cocktails with 4 things or less? Possible. You're welcome.
