To be clear, I am not advertising drinking away your feelings. I trust you are responsible people who know how to handle your liquor and if you’re not, what the hell are you doing clicking on a cocktail recipe?!
One positive thing about staying home during this period of #physicaldistancing is that one can drink without ever having to worry about how to get home safely. Below you will find my favourite recipe for those Zoom Drink Fridays, in servings of two but let’s be honest … these are both for me … who even cares.
Simply squeeze the grapefruit and mix the juice with the rest of the ingredients. Add the carbonated water at the end, voilá!
I don’t know about you, but I like to make myself feel better about having that second serving by pointing out the health benefits of my drink. If you are the same, let me spare you the googling.
Grapefruit smooths skin, strengthens your immune system, boosts your metabolism and is said to reduce stress.
Peppermint is often used as a fever reducer and it’s containing rosmarinic acid has antioxidant abilities that are known to neutralize free radicals.
Honey is a natural source of energy and boosts your memory, which basically makes it the perfect ingredient for date night once we’re out of quarantine.
