Yep, it’s party season again, which means after work drinks, barbecues with mates, and Christmas gathering after Christmas gathering. For sure it’s a great time of year, but the endless string of events tends to lead to an over-indulgence of drinking, leaving you feeling sub-optimal and a bit heavier around the belly. But by swapping out your usual sugar-laden mixers with a healthy alternative, you’ll not only skip a calorie overload, you’ll also do your gut a favour.
By now, you’ve probably heard of kombucha – a fermented, lightly fizzy tea that’s packed with some great potential health benefits. But you may not have thought of it as an ideal drinks mixer. Just a word of warning though, not all kombucha brands are as healthy as they claim to be. Some are full of sugar and have a short brewing process, which adds up to nothing more than a flavourless calorie-bomb.
Remedy Kombucha, on the other hand, goes through a long-aged brewing process which not only ensures that it’s the healthiest and the tastiest, but also means it contains no sugar, naturally (it’s the only brand that’s ‘I Quit Sugar’ approved). It also means their brews are full of natural live cultures which can support gut health by supplying billions of microorganisms that are full of vitamins, minerals and fibre, as well as increasing the diversity of your gut flora (i.e., getting those good bugs in your gut to work).
Additionally, Remedy Kombucha is certified organic, all-natural, vegan, gluten-free, fructose-free and paleo-friendly so is suitable for just about everyone. It’s also delicious and has eleven awesome flavours to choose from, like Ginger Lemon, Apple Crisp, and Lemon Lime Mint. Clean, light and fresh, Remedy Kombucha is a great alternative to soft drinks and the ideal, healthier mixer for your summer cocktails.
If you are looking for a sure-fire way to get the party started this season, this Spiced Rum and Fig cocktail is sure to do the trick.
