I love a good cocktail. I especially am loving the handcrafted cocktail craze and thoroughly enjoy trying new and different flavor combinations. I love fresh and fruity and herbal cocktails made with fresh juice and real herbs. Which leads me to my latest recipe to share with you: the Ningxia Cocktail!
My dad created this cocktail when his dr. recommended that he drink a little bit of liquor a day to help keep his veins clean and free of buildup. This cocktail combines the bit of liquor with the blood-sugar leveling ningxia, the vitamin c packed lemon and grapefruit and just a touch of stevia to sweeten the delicious nectar. It's delicious AND nutrient packed. Plus, it's gorgeous.
So, here's what you need:
1 shot of Gin
1 shot of Ninxia Red (or pomegranate juice)
Juice from 1 lemon
Juice from 1/2 grapefruit
Liquid Stevia (sweeten to taste - I use about 6-8 drops)
Combine in your favorite glass and enjoy!
See what I mean about that color?!
So what does this cocktail do for you? It is full of vitamin c, can help balance blood sugar, and is good for you heart, skin, immune system, and eyes. Plus, its beautiful and yummy. Cheers!
