Hey why not reward yourself with an indulgent (but healthy) cocktail to help shake off the stress that has been building all week? Ok, by now you have probably recognized that my cooking style is based on healthy, low fat, low sodium, unprocessed ingredients - and yes, I do live a very healthy lifestyle BUT - I do believe that alcohol in moderation is actually GOOD for you - hey it relieves stress, right? So less stress = less inflammation = more calm...so in creating my Pom-Kiwi-Crantini, I have combined antioxidant rich pomegranate juice with cranberry juice (good for the kidneys and bladder) and fresh kiwi (vitamin C) for the healthy aspect of this drink...*ahem - ok, then I added some tropical flavoured coconut vodka and...aaah I was instantly transported to a warm tropical clime (not literally...although after a few of these, you may believe you actually are there!
It's Friday...tie one on tonight!
