Summertime Drink Recipe
Here at Intox-Detox we love sharing great drink recipes, to be enjoyed of course moderately with a serving or two of Intox-Detox. Down in Florida where we are based, it’s getting mighty hot this time of year as summer fast approaches. A refreshing drink to enjoy on the beach is always a welcome addition. This Blackberry Whiskey Lemonade is delicious!
Props to Liquor.com for posting this awesome recipe, but we like to do things the Intox-Detox way. We think we have improved on it just a little bit. Here’s a link to the original article if you want to check it out…
We hate hangovers; and guzzling the white demon known as sugar can make your hangovers worse. Why is this? Sugar is highly inflammatory. The toxins from the alcohol are already causing cellular inflammation in the body. Any additional inflammatory substances will only make it worse. Not to mention, that the calories can really add up when you drink sugary beverages all day long. To learn more about how cellular inflammation contributes to hangovers and what you can do about it naturally, click here…
For this drink, we avoid the sugars by sweetening with Zevia sugar and calorie-free, all-natural sodas. See recipe below. Checkout their website and Facebook page to learn more about how they are changing soda into what it always should have been – a healthy refreshing beverage.
The good news is that this recipe contains blackberries, lemon juice and mint, all of which contain antioxidants that might help with inflammation. Let’s take a look…
- 12 blackberries
- 4 mint leaves
- 3 oz. Irish Whiskey
- 3 oz. lemon juice
- Zevia Strawberry, Black Cherry or Lemon-Lime Twist
Muddle the blackberries and mint (also Truvia simple syrup if you go that route) in a cocktail shaker until well combined.
Pour a splash of Zevia soda on top until it fizzes to bring out the flavors. If you don’t have Zevia, you can make simple syrup with Truvia and water. (Bring water to a boil and stir in Truvia until dissolved – 1/2 cup water to 3 1/2 Tablespoons Truvia. Then chill prior to use)
Add the Irish Whiskey and lemon juice to the shaker and fill it with ice.
Shake well to combine all ingredients and strain over two tall ice filled glasses.
Top off with Zevia soda and garnish with mint, blackberry and lemon slice. Check out all of the Zevia flavors and pick one or mix them for an even more unique lemonade drink.
And there you have it. Don’t’ forget to take your Intox-Detox for a #BETTERTOMORROW!
