Big Shots, Fizzy Mama's, and Hot Mama's

Oh the endless ways of which to enjoy your elixir!  Let me count the ways.. 

We have taken our job quite seriously in the elixir factory and committed ourselves to much experimentation!  We do our due diligence, I assure you!  When it comes to trying new ways to enjoy elixir, somehow we are all on board, 100%!   

I will not get into details here about the recipes we have collected by testing every whim we or anyone else under this sun has passed to us.  We have a new blog space devoted to recipes starting next week!  So look for that!

Rather, I am here to give you the rundown on the three most basic ways you can enjoy your elixir and still appear as a rockstar host at any dinner, friend gathering, or to your family for a fancy offering. They will think you fussed over them for hours..it's our secret!  They do not need to know it took you 30 seconds.  

 

Big Shots on Ice

"Big Shot" drinkers are  the equivalent to scotch lovers in the elixir world.  They pack a punch!  Simply find a decent 4 ounce glass, fill it with ice,  pour 1.5 ounces elixir over it. Sip slowly..  You will not believe that you are drinking good for you, immune boosting and energizing goodness!

These are great served as an aperitif or digestif.  It is a nice and simple way to enjoy the elixir of your choice before or after meals to clean the pallet and aid digestion. 

 

Fizzy Mama

It's mid afternoon and you've been working in the garden.  Or maybe you have guests over for a garden party.  Either way, the Fizzy Mama will deliver!  

Find a few sprigs of rosemary, mint or lemon balm in the garden for this one.  

Fill a 12 ounce or bigger glass with ice.  Pour 1.5 ounces of elixir and soda water to fill the glass. Garnish with a few slices of lemon or lime, frozen sour cherries or cranberries, and that lovely garnish you clipped from the neighbours yard.....I mean..your garden. Yum.  And what..this is full of anti-inflammatory ingredients!!

 

Hot Mama

Hot Mama

My favourite time for a Hot Mama is the morning. It warms the depths of my soul and helps jump start the entire digestive tract. It's a gentle and tasty way to start the day. 

I take about 1.5 ounces of elixir, add 3-4 ounces of water and steam with the latte machine steamer wand!  It foams into a gorgeous neon yellow micro foam.  Sprinkle cinnamon on it and drop a cinnamon stick in there for stirring the good flavour evenly!   

It seriously takes about a minute but will wow just about anyone on the planet Earth. Seriously, I know this from experience. You will be a beverage rockstar. Friends and family will think you and the Hot Mama are out of this world because it might be completely too good to be true!  

An Afternoon Ritual

An Afternoon Ritual

Now, you could just stick with the old fashion "glug glug" straight from the jar but I find it disappears way quicker that way!  Find your special cups and make a ritual of some sort out of it. Or make it pretty at least! And then, photograph it and send it to me with your recipe and maybe we can share your invention on our new recipe blog!  

Enjoy!
