This detoxifying and replenishing “hair of the dog” antioxidant-rich and liver-loving concoction provides a delicious antidote to alcohol’s toxic effects.  

Why this works:

Tomatoes are rich in lycopene which, among it’s many benefits, helps the liver eliminate toxins.

Lemon juice and zest are both high in the liver-cleansing antioxidant Vitamin C.  Lemon juice also aids in soothing the digestive upset that usually accompanies a hangover by alkalizing alcohol’s acidic effects.

Turmeric and ginger are both potent anti-inflammatories and ginger has anti-nausea properties as well – both needed after a night of over-indulging.

Bitters of any kind have detoxifying effects and add a nice flavor layer to any beverage.

Horseradish has detoxing benefits and adds a nice and much needed eye-opening zing!

The garnish is chock-full of nutrients as well and provides protein which is key to re-balancing your tipsy blood sugar.
