Cocktails with a healthy kick
Add a healthy twist to your cocktail cabinet this summer by adding some sparkling apple cider vinegar juice to the mix.
It has links to weight loss and other health benefits and a host of celebrities including Liz Hurley, Victoria Beckham, and Jennifer Aniston supposedly swear by it, but apple cider vinegar isn’t normally associated with great tasting drinks.
That’s all changed thanks to Lost Coast Food Co., who have launched a range of exciting, refreshing and tasty sparkling apple cider vinegar juices, which are not only delicious drinks themselves, but also add a new dimension to cocktails…
