While in some places the heat of summer is making way for cooler temperatures, in San Diego it is still hot, hot, hot. And that means we are still thinking about light, refreshing summer cocktails (yes, even on a Monday). But cocktails don’t have to mean sugar, calories and nasty hangovers. You can treat yourself while keeping things light and refreshing and even adding a little detox to your retox. This summer we’ve been adding Vital Protein’s collagen peptides to our cocktails and loving it. Collagen is great for hair, skin, nails, joints, your GI tract and more, and best of all, Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides dissolve into just about everything without changing the consistency or taste. Stop by ALCHEMĒ today, pick some up and cheers to living in the land of never ending summer.
Summer Citrus Collagen Cocktail
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- Sparkling water
- 1 to 2 scoops Collagen Peptides
- Basil, Rosemary, Mint or Lemon Verbena, to taste
- Maple syrup, honey or agave, to taste (optional)
Wisk the collagen peptides with a small amount of lemon or lime juice to dissolve. Add the rest of the lemon juice, lime juice and sparkling water. Muddle some fresh herbs of your choosing, to taste. If you like a sweeter drink, add a hint of natural sweetener. Garnish with a sprig of herbs. Sit back, soak in summer, and enjoy!
