Lime and Ginger Cocktail

Written by Miriam Jacobson – the Food Coach Nutrition Associate

Choose your poison… it’s halloween after all… But the magic and mayem of that disguise can make bad decisions extra enticing! Candy and bad boozing, anyone?

Not you. You’ll step away from candy (that’s for the kids) and enjoy an adult treat – a lime and ginger cocktail with booze! Yes, with booze but paired with lime to boost liver detoxification and ginger to decrease inflammation.  So if you’re imbibing, enjoy and don’t forget to take a B vitamin before bed to help metabolize the alcohol.
