The #NeverThirsty Margarita

 Alcohol can be super dehydrating and can deplete you of essential nutrients, which I why I like mixing up this margarita when I’m home. It’s super refreshing, hydrating, and packed with potassium and electrolytes because of the addition of coconut water. I like using Harmless Harvest because it’s completely pure.

Ingredients

  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 3 oz of high-quality blanco tequila 
  • Splash of Harmless Harvest coconut water 
  • Squeeze of an orange wedge (optional: if you like that triple sec flavor) 

 

Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and pour in a rocks glass over ice (or blend together if you prefer a slushed margarita). Salt the rim with some pink himalayan sea salt and garnish with a lime wheel. If you’re someone that likes a sweeter margarita, feel free to add a bit more coconut water. 

I promise, this does not have a "coconut flavor" - it actually balances nicely with the tequila and citrus.

The Collagen Martini

The Collagen Martini

Since alcohol can be so dehydrating, collagen keeps your skin glowing and also supports your digestive system, which can take a beating after a long night. The great thing about mixing collagen into your drink is that it’s colorless and flavorless, meaning you’re adding tons of nutrients without putting any sugar or additives. The best thing about this recipe is that it’s completely versatile! 

Kale and Green Appletini

I have been in love 😍 with ALOHA lately. From my morning protein shake (try it free) to my meal replacement bar at lunch, they've got it going on! Which is why I'm totally digging this martini... And I'm not normally a fan of an "Appletini," as they're usually super sugary and syrupy and unusually bright green. Not this one. Alo-haa!

Vodka Lemon Kicker

My ultimate favorite juice is the Suja Lemon Love. It's like the Master Cleanse, but without the maple syrup and sweetened lightly with stevia. It's lemon water with cayenne. It's got the perfect kick for a nice well-rounded cocktail. 

Ingredients: 

  • Suja Lemon Love 
  • Vodka 
  • Splash of Club Soda 

Directions: Pour ingredients over ice and stir. Garnish with a lemon wedge.
