The Makings of A Healthy Mocktail
It should be no surprise that toxins can be generally found within our food and alcoholic beverages. As toxins can be a huge tax on the liver, they can greatly affect our body’s natural detoxification process. By choosing to forgo alcohol and add aloe vera in its place, you’re not only being gentle on your body, but you’re also flooding it with healthy nutrients.
- Ice Cubes
- 1/2 Cup Non-Alcoholic Ginger Beer
- 1/4 Cup Sparkling Orange or Club Soda
- 1/4 Cup Freshly-Squeezed Orange Juice
- 2 Tablespoons of Freshly-Squeezed Lemon Juice
- 4 Tablespoons of Lily of the Desert’s Inner Fillet Aloe Juice
- Garnish with Orange Slice and Mint Sprig
Gently pour ½ cup of non-alcoholic ginger beer into your glass of choice. Be sure to tilt the glass on the side to keep the effervescence of the carbonation. If you prefer, you can use a Moscow Mule mug for an even bigger visual impact.
Next, pour ⅓ cup of sparkling orange or club soda into the glass the same way you added the ginger beer. As you pour, the two liquids should mix evenly.
Peel your oranges before placing them in your juicer. You’ll want to make a ¼ cup of freshly squeezed orange juice. Next, juice one or two lemons to yield two tablespoons. Mix the juices together before adding 4 tablespoons of aloe juice into the mixture. Make sure the juices are incorporated well before adding to the carbonated mixture.
The last step is to fill the glass with ice and garnish it with an orange slice and mint sprig. Enjoy!
The Health Benefits of Adding Aloe Vera
When your digestion is compromised, many of the vitamins and minerals found in food aren’t correctly absorbed into the body. Adding aloe vera juice can assist in aiding healthy digestion, immune support, and increased nutrient absorption.
With over 200 naturally occurring components including enzymes, vitamins, and amino acids, aloe vera juice is a great addition to beverages as it has a neutral flavor profile, making it easy to add into drinks without affecting the flavor. If you have a very sensitive palate, the preservative-free juice products may be a better choice, as they have a milder taste.
