Still recovering from the sugar-laced, slightly stressful (hello family gatherings riddled with subtle digs from mom, who’s wondering when she’s going to get some grandkids, and crazy uncle who loves to launch into a political debate over dessert)? We’re with you, which is exactly why we stepped up our mixology skills to bring you a mocktail to help nourish you both mentally & physically. Enter the Mind, Body, Soul Spritz: a mocktail the swirls science-backed health-supporting ingredients & fruity, fragrant flavor. The final product is a deliciously complex mocktail that marries sweet, floral, & juicy goodness with good-for-you benefits.
Each ingredient in this botanical concoction offers a research-backed body boost. Elderflower, with its delicate floral notes, is a well-known immune booster, its flavonoids packing a punch against common viruses. Studies suggest it can even alleviate allergy symptoms and promote restful sleep. Chamomile, the herbal maestro of tranquility, weaves its calming magic through its apigenin content, a natural stress reliever that promotes relaxation and eases anxiety. And last but not least, tangy orange juice, bursting with vitamin C, a nutrient that's not just essential for a robust immune system, but also plays a vital role in collagen production, giving our skin that fresh from the spa glow.
Let’s shake off the holiday hangover & give ourselves the TLC we deserve (and have duly earned after one too many slightly passive aggressive comments from the in-laws during the gift exchange). This self-care sip is just what the doctor ordered to refresh, restore, & revive from the inside out.
