Cleaner Cocktails

Cleaner Cocktails

Maximise the party, minimise the hangover.

We're all up for a good time, but we'd much rather have it without an earth-shattering hangover - especially if you're part of one of those families who run a New Year's Day 5k (we're all too familiar). To help you take the edge off without losing your edge, we've added an Artah twist to some of our favourite cocktails. Make, shake and enjoy.

Picanté

Serves 1
1 sliver red jalapeño (or more to taste)
3 sprigs coriander leaves
2 oz best quality tequila blanco
1.5oz freshly squeezed lime juice

Muddle the chilli and coriander in a shaker, then add the remaining ingredients and shake with ice. Serve in a short glass and add a chilli top as a garnish. 

Why it's cleaner: Removing the agave makes it sugar-free and the added spice will keep you from drinking it too quickly!

Grapefruit-Lime Greyhound

Serves 2 
3 oz best quality vodka
6 oz fresh squeezed pink grapefruit juice 
Juice of 2 limes

Combine grapefruit, lime juice, and vodka. Stir or shake to combine. 
Divide the mixture between 2 glasses with ice and enjoy!
 
Why it's cleaner: Using fresh pink grapefruit adds rich source of Potassium, Vitamin C and B Vitamins to your cocktail. 
 

Cucumber Collins

3 oz best quality gin
2/3 large cucumber, peeled OR 300mls cucumber juice 
Juice of 1 large lemon 
Juice of 1 lime 
A few springs of mint 
Club soda 

Put the peeled cucumber, lemon and lime juice in a blender and blend until smooth. Alternatively, you can blend the cucumber first and strain, however this isn't necessary. Divide the cucumber juice mixture between 2 glasses with ice. Top with club soda, a few mint leaves and enjoy!

Why it's cleaner: Traditional Tom Collins use sugar syrups, which wreak havoc on our mood, metabolism, and energy the next day. Using fresh cucumber juice lightens the insulin load whilst adding in essential electrolytes.
