Happy Halloween from Intox-Detox!
Just a quick note from our team to say Happy Halloween and pass on a fun cocktail recipe to get you in the ghoulish spirit. You know how we love our "BOOS", yet hate the day after blues, also known as the "BOO-HOOS"...
That being said, we bring to you once again a delicious cocktail that is as low in sugar as possible. As we should all know by now, sugar makes hangovers worse by increasing inflammation, disturbing normal blood sugar levels and adding a ton of useless calories. Some might argue that alcohol is another such calorie, but I disagree wholeheartedly. At least alcohol is fun!
Not to mention all the candy you will be stealing from the bowl at the front door. Or, if you have kids like me, from their stash.
We found a recipe for a Witch's Hat and thought it was pretty lame, but it had potential, so we made it practically sugar-free, added some Jagermeister and changed it's moniker to...
The Black Death
What you need:
- 1.5 oz Tito's Handmade Vodka (they recommend black vodka, but who has that in the house?)
- 1.5 oz Jagermeister
- 3/4 oz Chambord (use fresh squeezed blackberries or blueberries if you don't have it and dial up the vodka 0.5 oz)
- 1.5 oz RW Knudsen's Just Black Cherry Juice (not from concentrate)
- 1 oz Truvia simple syrup (2 packs per ounce of water)
- 1 capsule of Intox-Detox (optional)
- Blackberry or cherry garnish
What to do:
Add all ingredients to a shaker. Pack with ice. Shake for 30 to 45 seconds. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with blackberry or dark frozen cherry. As pictured, they suggest a crushed chocolate wafer garnish. Not really our style, but knock your socks off if you think it's worth the time.
The name is harsh and heavy, but the drink is pleasantly, though not sickeningly, sweet and light.
The Intox-Detox Antidote
Want to drink up on a few of these and stare death in the face without feeling like DEATH the next morning?
Here's a cool twist. Empty one full capsule of Intox-Detox into the shaker or Truvia simple syrup (for better dilution). That way, the ANTIDOTE is built right into the poison!
Too late to save your liver this Halloween, but pick up some Intox-Detox for the next party here...
Remember, the LIVER is the sworn enemy of the DEAD!
Happy Halloween and stay #liverstrong!
