It’s New Years Eve, and we’ve rounded up our three favorite better-for-you boozy beverages, guaranteed to help you ease into 2015 feeling your best! Our cocktails have less sugar than traditional syrupy-sweet cocktails, which can help minimize hangovers that are less than joyous. So eat, drink, and enjoy New Year’s festivities with nutritionist-approved recipes from Further Food. A toast to your health!
1. Orange Ginger Kombucha Cocktail: Full of B-vitamins and gut-healthy probiotics, this drink is as good for your belly as it is for your taste buds. With the kombucha in the cocktail mix, you’re basically detoxing, while you tox, right? We think so.
2. Grapefruit Rosemary Martini: This crisp, citrusy cocktail is part grapefruit, part vodka, and part pure perfection. Vitamin C and other antioxidants from the fresh-squeezed grapefruit help ward of winter flus, and rosemary is great for keeping your mind sharp and your cells happy.
3. Pear Bellini: Nothing says New Years like a glass of bubbly. Adding pear nectar not only boosts the flavor, but the B-vitamins that often get depleted during alcohol-fueled evenings.
