Every weekend Neil and I do a date night in, yes we make dinner together at home the other nights of the week but this night we make it a little more special. We tend to make our favorite meals like tacos, pizza or pasta but with a healthier spin on it and with that we will make a corresponding drink to go with it.
As Neil and I have been watching our a alcohol consumption we have been enjoying making some freaking delicious mocktails. As I am really focused on everything fertility for both Neil and I, I love making food and drinks that serve both a purpose of fuel for our bodies but also having some health benefits as well.
Like this Grapefruit Fizz!
Like antivirals from the honey, vitamin C from the citrus and anti-inflammatory properties from the ginger!
We hope you enjoy this as much as we do, regardless if you want to add a shot in it or not but let me tell you it is delicious as is.
Juice of 1 grapefruit
Juice of 1 lime
1 tbsp peeled and grated fresh ginger
½ cup bubbly water or seltzer
1 tsp Honey for sweetness ( optional)
Rosemary – I like this for the holidays
Mint- I like this for the summer.
In a blender you will want to place the grapefruit and lime juice with the ginger, and honey if desired, and blend. Next you will pour the mixture over ice between your two glasses. Top with bubbly water and stir. Garnish with desired garnish and enjoy!
