cocktail

Getting ready for the #fourthofjuly?! Try my revised #Paloma (typical #Mexican #cocktail).  
We all know #alcohol is bad for our health. That said, telling people not to drink is probably not going to be that effective. They will drink anyways… SO- my approach is #moderation and #improvement (#lesssugar, mainly).  
#BuildingTheDrink:  
Ingredients: #tequila or #mezcal, #grapefruit, #Agave (optional), #seltzer, S&P.  
Muddle 2-3 pieces of grapefruit with 1 ounce of tequila, and ½ tsp of Agave). Grind a little S&P directly into the drink. Add ice and seltzer and mix. So good and only #80calories!!  
NOTE: This is not the size of a regular shot. Usually every shot is 1.5 ounces. Which means… You can get away with drinking two :)

American Spirit

Enjoy this little red & blue drink (in moderation) for tomorrow’s festivities.

Place all the below ingredients in a big bowl:

- 2 cups of watermelon
- 2 cups of blueberries
- 1 cup of vodka
- ½ lime
- 3 tsp of sugar (or 1 packet of stevia)

Let sit for at least a couple of hours and then add sparking water and ice to taste.

Serve with a soup spoon. 

A few drinking tips:

*Fruit is naturally sweet so there is no need for much more additional sugar.

*DRINK WATER and SLOW DOWN. Alcohol is technically a toxin, therefore your liver will always try to eliminate it first. Therefore, it will bypass food to digest/process the alcohol. When you drink water, you give your liver a chance to “catch up.”

Happy 4th!
