5 Healthy(ish) Cocktail Recipes

Alcohol isn’t necessarily a healthy choice, but we can lessen the damage by making our cocktails with other healthy ingredients. That way you can get your probiotics in while simultaneously shutting down your metabolism… life’s all about balance, right? 😉   In all seriousness, we’ve curated a list of healthy(ish) cocktails to enjoy without the questionable ingredients commonly found in fruity summer drinks. BONUS! Our co-founder, Matt D’Amour, created this groovy playlist to go with them. Invite your homies over and enjoy an evening of cocktails and tunes.

  • Juice from ½ organic lime
