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 Spirit, which is made with Lithe's Smile Sparkle Shine and AITA's Rhubarb liquor. 


If you love champagne and Smile Sparkle Shine, you'll love this! Lithe's Smile Sparkle Shine is a cold-pressed juice made with grapefruit, pear, and apple. Our refreshing combo is healthy, tasty and low in calories. Grapefruit is rich in vitamin C, lycopene (pink and red only!), and has salicylic acid which dissolves inorganic calcium formed deposits that may build up in the cartilage of joints and cause arthritis. Pear is a good source of insoluble fiber and reduces grapefruit's tartness, yet really enhances its tastiness. AITA's Rhubarb liquor is made with a botanical bounty of beets, carrots, lemons, petitigrain, cardamom, pure cane sugar, and rhubarb (of course!). Together they're refreshing and light and perfect for Bellini-esque brunch cocktail.



2 oz. Rhubarb liquor

4 oz. Smile Sparkle Shine

1 oz. club soda

Lemon twist for garnish



Pour ingredients into a champagne flute. Place lemon twist on the rim or in the glass. 

Yield: 1 serving

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! First up in this 13-week series is our Bunny Mary, which is made with Lithe's Bunny Detox and AITA's Rhubarb liquor. 


Lithe's Bunny Detox is a cold-pressed juice made with orange, carrot, lime, and celery.

Together, they make a refreshing, perfect-for-brunch Bloody Mary! 


If you're celebrating with us at Lithe Tour Philly this Saturday, you'll get to try it or you can make it at home.




4 oz. Bunny Detox

2 oz. Rhubarb liquor

Celery for garnish

*St. Lucifer Spice


To Do:

First, rim the glass. To coat the rim, mix St. Lucifer spice (a blend of garlic, salt, vinegar and fiery habanero that can be found at the Art in the Age store) into a bowl with coarse sea salt. Use a lime to wet the rim of the glass, turn the glass upside down, and coat the rim of it with the spicy, salt blend. Then, combine Bunny Detox and Rhubarb in the glass. Add ice until the liquid almost reaches the rim.

BOOM! HOT TODDY 7 Feb 2014


For about two and a half weeks during the month of January I had the nastiest sinus infection.  After a lot of OTC medicine, Neti pot treatments and finally a Z Pack, it was the good old Hot Toddy that relieved my symptoms, and helped me sleep at night.  It's so easy: heat 6-8 ounces of Lithe Foods Boom! with a 1-2 ounces of Bourbon or Whiskey.  I add in 1 tablespoon of Swarmbustin' Totally Raw Honey. The combination of lemon, cayenne, and ginger, honey (and whiskey!) does the trick.

Lets celebrate the first day of the summer with the quintessential laid-back summertime cocktail, the Piña Colada.  Here's a lighter recipe with no need for Coconut Cream!  If you like Piña Coladas... here's a little history: Mr. Ramon Manchito Marrero Pérez was tending bar at the Caribe Hilton when he was introduced to the product Coco Lopez, and the Piña Colada, translated as “squeezed pineapple,” was born. A sign at La Barra in San Juan’s Old City has a different claim: In 1963, the Piña Colada was created there by Mr. Don Ramón Portas Migot. That both claimants have four names might indicate a tie, but most authorities credit Pérez.

Directions: Place the rum, Spring (Break) Recovery Smoothie in a blender, and blend for a few seconds. Add 1/2 cup crushed ice, and blend for another 15 seconds, or until smooth. Pour into an glass of your choice and garnish with a pineapple slice. 



This is a Lithe Main Line favorite!  A few particular Main Line Lithers have been traveling to Lithe Old City to hunt down our Mojito so they can satisfy their craving for this particular cocktail on the weekends! 


  • 2 ounces parts Effen Cucumber Vodka
  • 2-4 ounces Lithe Mojito
  • 2 ounces club soda


Mix 2 ounces Cucumber Vodka and 2-4 ounces of Lithe Mojito in a coctail shaker. Pour over ice, top with 2 ounces of club soda and garnish with a few cucumber wheels.    



In the mood for something blended and delicious?  I love this one!  


2 parts Disaronno

5 fresh strawberries

A handful of ice cubes

Half a bottle (8 oz.) of Lithe's Strawberry Coconut Smoothie

MINT JULEP! 24 May 2013


I always kick off the summer with a cold, fresh, Mint Julep.  During my college years at USC, we would drink Juleps during our derby season, which was called the Carolina Cup  (the Julep is the official drink of the Kentucky Derby).  I love the taste of this drink, but I also love the aromatherapy benefits and the way that my house smells while I'm making it.

There's a real ritual to making a Julep and it's all about ensuring you extract the right amount of oils from the mint by gently muddling it with the sugar OR making a simple syrup before adding crushed ice.  The key to making the drink look awesome is adding extra crushed ice to top it off and then using the ice as a vehicle to decorate with garnishes. Always make sure the mint for the garnish is the freshest you have and keep in mind that you do not have to limit yourself to using mint — you can add whatever fruit or berries you'd like.

Mint Julep (Makes 2 servings)

2 tablespoons coconut simple syrup (see below)

4-6 fresh mint sprigs/mint leaves

1 1/2 ounces of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice OR Smile Sparkle Shine

Crushed ice

2/3 cup Jamaican Rum (I prefer Blackwell) or Bourbon

Coconut Sugar Simple Syrup

1 cup boiling water + 1 cup coconut sugar (can sub w/ honey or agave) + 2-3 mint leaves.  Stir boiling water into sugar until sugar dissolves. Simple syrup will keep for a long time refrigerated in covered container.


Pour 1 tablespoon Coconut Simple Syrup into a tall glass. Add 2 sprigs mint, crushed slightly. Add ice. Stir in 1/3 cup rum or bourbon. Add more ice to fill glass. Garnish with mint.

Emerald Mary

Lithe Instructor Carrie Gero and I came up with the Emerald Mary; a lighter, GREEN version of the beloved Bloody Mary.  I must say that it's delish!  Created by Fernand “Pete” Petiot of Harry’s American Bar in Paris, the Bloody Mary was supposedly named for a woman Mary who spent long hours at the bar awaiting her lover.  The “Bloody,” has since started to include ingredients as diverse as basil and roasted garlic and has been endlessly reinvented.  Here's another...this one is light, crisp, refreshing and green. 

  • 2 ounces Ketle One vodka
  • 4-6 ounces of Lithe Foods Greenie 
  • Ice
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated horseradish (optional)
  • Pinch or two of Old Bay
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Pinch of freshly ground pepper
  • Wedges of lemon and lime


Combine all ingredients in a shaker, add ice, shake and strain into a rocks glass and garnish with a lemon wheel.  Enjoy!

Skinny HeathenThis one comes from Lithe's Old City Manager, Chrissy Parker (thanks Chrissy!).  Have you ever tried Lithe Foods Skinny Chocolate Milk with black iced coffee?  You must!  Who knew that our chocolate milk would be a great substitute for cream and a delicious, healthy mixer (no need for whipped cream).  Add Baileys, Tia Maria or Frangelico this weekend for added fun.
