The season of eating, drinking, and being merry is upon us! Now don’t get me wrong, I love eggnog, but after having the same drinks and food time and time again, it’s refreshing to shake it up a little bit.
That’s why I spent time in our test kitchen creating 3 new holiday cocktail recipes for you to try out this holiday season.
A Magical Mixer
The mixer you choose is incredibly important. Mixers deliver flavor to your drink and cool the alcohol burn, but they also tend to bring a lot of sugar, colorants, “natural” flavors, and weird ingredients.
I’ve used Maywell as my main mixer for each of these drinks:
- It’s flavorful
- No refined sugar
- Each can is packed with 5g prebiotic fiber to help you gut
This gut health part is especially important during the holiday season. If you’re like me, your diet might consist of more cookies, pie, and ‘taters than “normal” — and that’s okay! But sometimes it can leave my gut feeling a little off.
That’s where Mayawell comes in. It adds prebiotic fiber to your diet which helps nourish your existing gut bacteria. (Not to mention it makes a delicious cocktail mixer.)
There’s no better way to start the day during the holidays than with a festive morning Mimosa. This Mimosa is subtly sweet and a little tangy.
3 T pineapple juice
50% Pineapple Mango Mayawell
Garnish: Thin pineapple slice
Pear Apple Cider
This drink feels so much like fall, I recommend wearing a sweater while you drink it. Mixing apple and pear gives this holiday cocktail a bright, light flavor I absolutely love.
1/3 cup sparkling apple cider
1 shot Bourbon (optional)
1/2 cup Pear Lime Mayawell
Garnish: Thin pear slice + cinnamon sticks
Raspberry Italian Soda
This one is SO refreshing! The half & half makes it smooth, satisfying, and perfect for a chilly day.
1/2 can Raspberry Cucumber Mayawell
6 tbsp half-and-half
1 T simple syrup
Garnish: 3 raspberries
Gut-Healthy Cocktails, Please
Don’t let a bad gut slow you down during the holidays. Your time should be spent hanging out with friends, not hanging out in the bathroom.
These cocktails will do just that! They’re flavorful, they’re festive, and they have everything you need to be your best.
