Mama caesar

Oh Mama Sita…this one has me hooked!

If you are a lover of Savory cocktails and spice, this one will make you happy.

We thought about making our own tomato juice for this but then, these recipes are supposed to be fast and easy ideas for enjoying our elixirs. So, we went out and bought Walter Vegan Caesar Mix. It’s one of many options.

Choose a nice hot sauce as it is an important ingredient in a good Caesar! You want complimentary flavours and spice. We chose Salt Spring Kitchen Co’s new hot sauce not only because their factory is right beside ours, it is also one of the very best I have ever had! We eat it by the spoonful sometimes..

The salt is important too. Use a high quality, pure sea salt. Real sea salt actually reduces inflammation by bringing minerals into the body that boosts its immunity. And hey, we’re all about immune boosting so that’s reason enough right there!

We use Salt Spring Sea Salt because it is pretty much awesome and the owner of the company is so geeky about salt and only makes the best! He is across the street too so that is convenient!

Anyway, on to drink making!

Throw your glass in the freezer and get it good and cold.

Prepare your garnish (and by prepare garnish I mean wash a stick of celery!)

Mix some sea salt and chilli powder in a plate.

Rim your glass with a lime wedge and then roll in your chilli sea salt.

Fill with ice

Add 1.5oz Turmeric Elixir

Add a good tablespoon or 2 of fresh lemon juice.

Fill to 3/4 full with Caesar Mix

Add a generous dose of hot sauce

Top with a little bubbly water

Gently Stir

Garnish

Sprinkle with a little extra hot sauce, sea salt and pepper and squeeze some lime juice on top

Take a photo and post to instagram because you are proud of your creation! Tag us so we can see it and maybe we will share it!

Enjoy!

Elixir Sour

This is a non-alcoholic vegan take on the Whiskey Sour.

I’ve always loved the way those creamy cocktails looked when egg whites were used to “fluff” it up when shaken in with the other ingredients. However, I did not want to use egg whites and thought I’d give aquafaba a try. Aquafaba is simply the liquid in a can of beans.

We opened the can, drained the liquid, set aside the beans and made hummus out of them while we sipped our beverage we made!

Add ice to your shaker and glass.

To the shaker add…

2oz Turmeric Elixir

1oz Aquafaba

juice from 1/2 lemon

3-5 frozen sour cherries

Shake that baby for a good 30 seconds or so!

Pour into your nice cold glass of ice.

Garnish

Enjoy!

Mint mama

Being in full summer mode, it is great to have a few quick and hydrating drink recipes for enjoyment while being nourishing. This one is a favourite and so easy.

We keep some mint plants growing wild around the house and harvest it fresh before making this family favourite.

Pick your favourite glass and throw 3-4 slices of lime and 6-8 mint leaves in it.
