Mediterranean Tzatziki Dip (dairy-free)

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 6-8 as a dip or 10 for when paired with meat or seafood

This dip is one I have been obsessed with all summer. It is refreshing with the thinly shredded cucumbers and lemon juice. I love it with Mary’s crackers or pairing it with lamb in a Gyro bowl or on top of some wild salmon. If you are not sensitive to dairy, or you are not aware of being sensitive to dairy, it doesn’t hurt to cut it our for a bit (let’s say 10 days) to see how you feel when you enter it back in. I personally stick to sheep or goat products for cheeses, but either way whatever you choose make sure it is organic, full-fat and preferably raw/unpasteurized.

Peppermint Pomegranate Mules with Ginger

I wanted to make something festive and of course something that tastes delicious and would be fun to make in a punch bowl or just for some family. I found organic pomegranate juice at Trader Joes after fresh pressing it for the event so I would recommend buying that. Has anyone ever tried juicing a fresh pom? Not only is it time-consuming but it is so dang messy, I hope you enjoy and make sure to take you activated charcoal!

This recipe is made with a persimmon syrup and organic Hope vodka.  Make sure you always take your activated charcoal when drinking or eat foods that upset your gut.

How to drink without the hangover

That is why I recommend and personally LOVE Dry Farm Wines.
