I don’t recommend it but I like theories… theories worked for Issac Newton anyways and people called him crazy. If I can’t live in a world where I can be an athletic alcoholic then I’m out.
How Can You Make A Moscow Mule Healthy?
You can make a Moscow Mule healthy with fresh grated ginger, lime juice and mineral water. Then you can go the extra yard with spirulina, matcha, lemon juice and gluten free vodka!
Fresh ginger has a plethora of added health benefits such as it boosts immunity, fights infection, soothes the stomach, counters acid reflux and is an anti-inflammatory.
Overall one major thing I do to cut out some sweetness and sugar is use just straight lime juice vs. lime cordial or syrup.
Lime juice also said to have a ton of benefits for your digestive system, skin, heart health, immunity-boosting, lowering cancer risk and is said to promote weight loss.
Lemon juice supports weight loss, promotes hydration, good source of vitamin c, improves skin quality, aids digestion, freshens breath as well as detoxes.
Spirulina is apparently is like a super-duper food… pretty sure you can walk on water with the correct serving.
It is a micro-algae that can be a protein supplement and contains amino acids, B vitamins, beta-carotene, copper, iron, magnesium, potassium, manganese, vitamin E, high in antioxidants, minerals, chlorophyll and phycocyanobilin.
Matcha is a great natural healthy energy drink with as much caffeine as a cup of coffee.
It is also high in antioxidants, good for the liver (which is important when drinking), boosts brain function, good for heart health, helps prevent cancer, promote weight loss and loaded with antioxidants.
