Healthy Homemade Holiday Cocktails
The holidays are upon us and with them come countless celebrations. It’s that time of year when we toast the season with special alcoholic drinks.
But along with the joy of partying can come unwanted health consequences from the consumption of alcohol. Research has shown that over-consuming alcohol can disrupt the natural balance of the digestive tract and increase the risk of ulcers and gastritis. Over-indulging in these types of beverages can also lead to the unpleasant symptoms of a hangover, such as a severe headache, upset stomach, and whole-body fatigue.
This season, consider enhancing your favorite mixed drink with probiotic ingredients. The addition of probiotics to your favorite holiday creation will allow you to celebrate the magic of the event while supporting your digestive track with healthy nutrients.
Probiotic Friendly Cocktails
Kombucha is a “good-for-your-gut” probiotic-rich fermented tea. This popular drink provides an ideal base for healthy holiday cocktails. Try a Blueberry Mojito Kombucha that provides the added benefits of antioxidants, or toast your way through the holidays with this Kombucha Champagne mixture.
Kefir is a potent source of probiotics. It is a cultured, fermented beverage that many say tastes like a yogurt drink. As a key ingredient in this Mango-Rum drink, it is the perfect recipe for a holiday brunch.
A Simple Solution
But if all this mixing and measuring has you feeling overwhelmed this holiday season, there is an easy answer to making any cocktail friendly to your digestive system.
By adding an unflavored, powered probiotic supplement to your favorite adult beverage, you’ll be adding beneficial nutrients without sacrificing taste.
Adding a shot of probiotics into your mixed drink this holiday season will help keep your digestive tract happy and healthy, without sacrificing the deliciousness of celebratory cocktails.
