Elixir No 8 + Bergamot | Detox, 8oz *small batch, seasonal
Elixir No 8 + Bergamot with Burdock + Lemon + Maple | ACV Detox - apple cider vinegar elixir.
This is a seasonal and small-batch elixir.
We supercharged our detox drink!
Why we love it: Bergamot citrus is a lemon-orange hybrid that encourages cellular renewal. Fresh Bergamot Citrus is only available for 1 month each year and we got our case and put them to work straight away in our detox Elixir. They taste amazing and supercharge all the benefits.
Burdock and lemongrass are both traditionally thought of as organ and blood detoxifiers and are mildly diuretic, aka cleansing. Lemon peels are where all the flavor and healing properties are, red chilies are invigorating and stimulating for the system. Maple syrup is not metabolized in the liver like most sugars and is a perfect complement to your detox drink. And it is in a base of apple cider vinegar. Approximately 12 calories and under 3 grams of carbs/sugar per tablespoon. Also available unsweetened.
Taste: Lemony with a floral and sweet earthiness and just a hint of salty savoriness from the jalapeno with only a slight heat on the finish thanks to the maple.
How to drink: 1 Tablespoon in a glass of water up to 3 times a day for best results.
Can be enjoyed as a refreshing beverage for daily support and happiness.
We like it as a healthy lemonade alternative, an upgraded Arnold Palmer in your favorite tea, and in sparkling water for a healthy soda.
Always remember... there is no wrong way to drink your vinegar! :)
As a health booster take 1 tablespoon one to two times per day. Best results when taking it at the same time daily as part of a healthy diet.
- A tablespoon before breakfast. This gives you all the sugar busting benefits of the vinegar and get's the day off to a great start. Most popular.
- A tablespoon at bedtime, traditionally for things like leg cramps and metabolism (sugar).
- Our favorite is a tablespoon in the afternoon when you are feeling that natural energy dip and food craving. This will crush that craving and give you energy and appetite control till dinner.
- For indigestion start with half a tablespoon and increase to a full tablespoon as needed.
STRAIGHT OR MIXED?
That is totally up to you. What it should be is pleasant and enjoyable, so make it any way you like it.
- If you drink it straight it's best to follow with a water chaser.
- If you mix it, again it's up to you, we like a ratio of 1:1 in the morning when we are in a hurry. Other times we put it in a glass of 4 to 8 ounces of water or juice when we are in the mood to linger a little. Try pineapple, grapefruit or tomato.
- When we are feeling a bit under the weather we will double up and take 2 tablespoons in 8 oz hot water for the extra boost and hydration.
- We have also been known to add it to sparkling water just for fun!
- For Water and Bubbley Water - Start with a Tablespoon of Tonic in 1/2 cup of water and adjust to your taste, add a lemon or orange twist for an extra bit of freshness.
- Tonics really shine in unsweetened teas of all flavors and a little goes a long way to bring out the flavor of the tea and vinegar. Start with a Teaspoon of your favorite tonic in 6 oz of cold or hot tea, adjust till you get it just right.
- We will be posting more recipes on our blog page in the very near future.
Please tell us how you like to drink it, and always remember... There is no wrong way to enjoy your vinegar elixir.
