lemon love cocktails1Weekends are allll about balance for me. After working really hard all week, I thoroughly enjoy getting together with friends and enjoying a cocktail or two on a Friday night. Who doesn’t? What I definitely don’t enjoy is the headache and hangover one is usually greeted with the next morning after enjoying said cocktails. I learned not too long ago that the hangover symptoms are mostly a result of a battle between the alcohol and the sugar found in traditional cocktails. The answer? Cold-pressed, low sugar cocktails with Lemon Love!

There are endless ways to use Suja Lemon Love to recreate your favorite adult beverage, but here are 4 of my favorites:

Blueberry Lemonade

  • 1 1/2oz Blueberry flavored Vodka
  • 2 oz Suja Lemon Love
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • Slice of lemon

Directions: Mix vodka and Lemon Love in a mason jar or glass. Add blueberries and a slice of lemon.

Cold-Pressed Daiquiri (makes 2)

  • 1 bottle Suja Lemon Love
  • 2 cups frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup rum

Directions: Add ingredients to blender. Blend until you reach a smooth consistency.

Cucumber Mint Cooler

  • 2 oz gin
  • 1/2 cup cucumber cut into chunks, plus a few thinly sliced for garnish
  • 4 mint leaves plus more for garnish
  • 2oz Suja Lemon Love
  • Chilled Club soda
  • Ice

Directions: In the jar of a blender, combine the cucumber chunks, the mint leaves, sugar and lemon juice. Puree until you have a smooth mixture. Fill a glass with ice. Add 2 ounces of gin to each glass. Fill the glass to 2/3rds full with the cucumber mixture. Top with club soda and stir well.

Suja-Rita

  • 6oz Suja Lemon Love
  • 1 1/2 oz tequila
  • 1 1/2 oz cointrau
  • 1oz Suja Fuel
  • splash of lime juice (optional)
Directions: Pour over ice and enjoy!

 

Cheers!
