Salad & Chips
The perfect combination. One part healthy, one part yummy. Whilst we know that our cocktails are mostly just yummy, they also all have a little element of health too.
In a previous blog we mentioned all the goodness that Passion Fruit can do for you including improving the digestive system, reducing cholesterol and easing depression. It can’t get much better than that for a cocktail can it?!
We’ve given our Whisky Sour a kick of Manuka Honey which is said to be effective for treating everything from a sore throat to healing wounds to clearing up blemishes on your skin. It is native to New Zealand and is produced by bees who pollinate the manuka bush. Mixed with a good slug of whisky and some lemon and you’ve got yourself a delicious hot toddy for those wintery months.
Matcha Green Tea is rich in natural antioxidants which can reduce cell damage and prevent chronic disease. Matcha is powdered young green tea leaves which are specially grown in the shade for three or four weeks. It has 137 times more antioxidants than regularly brewed green tea, so you can feel good about looking after your skin while sipping on that Matcha Mojito!
Our Old Fashioned comes with a side of Blood Orange which is packed full of Vitamin A & C which help improve skin cells and prevent diseases such as scurvy. The difference between blood oranges and regular oranges is the level of anthocyanins which is what gives blood oranges their beautiful red colouring and is associated with improved cardiovascular health and metabolic diseases, just as berries do.
So next time you feel guilty about cracking open a cocktail, just remember that as long as it’s Niche, there’s a little bit of goodness in there too!
