BOOM CHICA BOOM SKINNY HEATHEN 21 Nov 2014
TGIF! At Lithe, we're all about making healthy choices without sacrificing any of the fun. Welcome to our Lithe Foods Skinny Heathen collaboration with Art In The Age spirits! Next in this 13-week series is Boom Chica Boom, which is made with Lithe's Boom and AITA's Rhubarb liquor.
If you're looking for a healthy, healing cocktail with a kick, this is it! Lithe's Boom is a cold-pressed juice made from lemon, ginger, and cayenne. Lemons are full of vitamin C which is a powerful antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals both inside and outside the cell. Free radicals can cause inflammation and the antioxidants in lemons are helpful for reducing inflammation and easing symptoms of arthritis. Ginger reduces bloating, relieves motion sickness, and also helps promote detoxification. Cayenne also fights inflammation, clears congestion, assists weight loss, and gives your immune system a boost with its high content of beta-carotene.
Boom is great straight or as a hot toddy. AITA's Rhubarb liquor is made with a botanical bounty of beets, carrots, lemons, petitigrain, cardamom, pure cane sugar, and rhubarb. Married, they make Boom Chica Boom – a refreshing vodka lemonade with a cayenne kick!
2 oz. Rhubarb liquor
4 oz. Boom
Honey to taste (reduce the spice by adding more honey)
Fill a highball glass with ice, pour in Boom, Rhubarb, and honey, and then garnish with a lemon wedge.
