Cold Pressed Cocktails

There is such a thing as healthy cocktails, and we've taken #balance to a whole new level!  Mixing your alcohol with cold-pressed juice or fresh nut-mylks will keep you feeling light, energized and equally naughty as you are nice.

Sweet Life Mojito

[su_spacer size="20"]

Ingredients:

4-6 mint leaves

1/2 TBSP to 1 TBSP agave, depending on your sweet tooth.

1-2 oz of Rum

2 slices of lime

4 oz or 1/2 cup of Sweet Life

4 oz Club Soda**

Directions:

Add mint leaves, agave, rum, and lime slices to a martini shaker.

Use a wooden spoon to muddle and mix the ingredients

Add ice cubes and 4 oz Sweet Life to your shaker and shake it up!

Pour the contents into a glass without straining

Top with 4 oz Club Soda

Typically mojitos are really sweet, but we like to make it juuust sweet enough. We halved the sugar and swapped out agave for brown sugar. We also opted for club soda rather than tonic water to further cut the sugar. A sugar hangover is often the worse kind!

Bailey's and Mylk

[su_spacer size="20"]

Nutmylk, of course! All 3 of these nut-mylks go amazingly with either Bailey's or Kahlua and make Christmas cozier and crazier at the same time!

If you are looking for extra creamy with a hint of vanilla, opt for Creamy Cashew.

Chocolate lovers will delight in a Mylk Chocolate.

... And for the extra hit of caffeine to turn wrapping presents into a party, go for Ooh La Latte.

Simply add 1-2 oz of Baileys or Kahlua to a tumbler and top with your favourite Good Life Nut-Mylk. Serve over ice. If you enjoyed this post, you might just enjoy our related post: Health Junkies Guide to a Holiday Hangover ;)  (because... balance, right?!)
