Now that all the fun of the holidays has settled, it’s easy to also settle into a major case of the winter blues. Especially with the crazy cold weather that most of the country has been experiencing the last few days.
To avoid a case of dreary mood caused by dreary weather, shake things up a bit inside with a refreshing and unique cocktail. It’s easy to come home from work and pour yourself a glass of wine. It’s your go-to for a reason: it’s great. But, when you are trying to ward off negative vibes, something as simple as an exciting cocktail to look forward to during your work day is enough to keep things fresh.
The ingredients for this are so simple! You may even have everything already at home. If not, the good news is that they are all relatively inexpensive.
The orange juice really brings me back to summer with each sip. But, the turmeric and rosemary gives it that cozy and wintery feel that makes it seasonally appropriate. It’s the best of both worlds. Plus, who doesn’t love ingredients that perform?
The orange juice is packed with immune-boosting vitamin C, while turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties. So not only is it delicious, it’s just what the doctor called for to help your body recover from its’ winter sniffles. Ok, so maybe alcohol isn’t the best cure, but I can keep telling myself that it is, right!?
