There is an Irish drinking toast, Sláinte, which translates literally as “health,” and can be slightly modified to mean “good health.” Promoting good health while drinking alcohol may seem counterproductive, but there are ways to sneak some health benefits into cocktails.
Take superfoods for example. In general, superfoods are versatile, containing vitamins, minerals, proteins, or fiber. There are superfoods for every season, and the term has become a huge marketing hit for people wanting to create a healthier lifestyle. They’ve even infiltrated the previously mentioned cocktail realm. In New York, bars offer superfood alcoholic drinks and Westin Hotels & Resorts developed superfood mojitos in 2010.
The accessibility of superfoods makes superfood cocktails readily available for even the novice bartender. Since there is always an in-season option, finding the ingredients for these cocktails should be a breeze. The seven recipes here are just the beginning, so find out which superfoods can easily be mixed with alcohol to make an adult-friendly beverage. After finding out how the particular superfood, or foods, are a healthy choice, you’ll be saying Sláinte with the following drinks.
