Clean Cocktails: Righteous Recipes for the Modernist Mixologist by Beth Ritter Nydick
In Clean Cocktails, holistic health coaches Beth Ritter Nydick and Tara Roscioli bring a clean-living mindset to craft mixology. Their recipes use nothing but neutral, low-calorie spirits; fresh juices loaded with vitamins; gentle sweeteners like honey and maple syrup; and anti-inflammatory spices like cinnamon, cayenne and turmeric-the perfect alternative to drinks that are typically loaded with refined sugars, artificial flavours and dyes.
Much more than a compendium of cocktails, this book provides recipes for "clean" syrups and bitters so readers can easily build their own delicious drinks. Nydick and Roscioli also highlight ingredients with health benefits, such as ginger (better digestion), cilantro (good for detox) and even vodka (metabolism booster, thanks very much).
