I’M HAPPY NOW :)

Here is the first in my Immune-Boosting Cocktails/Mocktails Series designed to increase your wellness while putting a smile on your face

Cheers!!

This sassy little anti-viral, vitamin-C-rich cocktail is my favorite way to shake off the cabin-fever blahs and boost my immune system at the same time – now that’s what I call a win-win!

INGREDIENTS:

3-4 ounces freshly-squeezed grapefruit juice

1 ounce high-quality vodka or gin (I like Prairie Organic Crafted Spirits) 

1 T honey-rosemary infused simple syrup

Splash of St. Germain (Elderflower)

Mineral water

Ice

GARNISH:

Rosemary sprig

Grapefruit wedge

METHOD: 

In an iced cocktail shaker, shake all ingredients except mineral water.  Strain into iced glass and top off with mineral water.  Garnish with rosemary sprig.

Herb-Infused Simple Syrup:

Bring to a boil 1 cup water and 1 cup raw, organic honey stirring occassionally.  Reduce heat to low and stir until honey is dissolved, reduced and thickened – about 10 minutes.  Remove from heat and add 4 rosemary sprigs and let herbs steep for at least 30 minutes while syrup cools.  Remove herbs from syrup and pour through a fine mesh strainer into a glass mason jar.  Infusion can be stored in an airtight container in refrigerator for up to 1 month.

FOR A MOCKTAIL: Replace alcohol with more mineral water and replace St. Germain (Elderflower liqueur) with Elderflower syrup or cordial which are alcohol-free.
