Alkalizing Vodka Cocktail

Well, this drink is a spin on the "master cleanse" which is a alkalizing detox drink that I use during the week, in my resets or when I want to get my body back into balance. If you want to check out the non- boozy one here is the recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 ounces vodka, choose organic if possible
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • a couple dashes of cayenne pepper
  • 5-8 drops liquid stevia
  • 6 ounces alkaline water or if you want it bubbly use Pellegrino not the acidic artificially carbonated infused drinks like La Croix (did I just kill your dreams)

Place all ingredients into a cup add ice and serve! You can get fancy and shake it but it's not necessary.
