Kombucha Cocktail: Cosmopolitan
What’s so special about the cosmopolitan? It is fun, sexy and pink. It was all the rage back in the days of Sex and the City. So we can clink to Carrie (and the girls) when we whip those martini glasses out of our cabinets.
Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate all the love in our lives. Plus it’s a time for a bit of indulgence with cocktails and some chocolate. Which begs the inevitable question…
Can you enjoy a few cocktails while leading what’s considered to be a healthy lifestyle? The answer is YES, but there are a few things to keep in mind. You simply need to be alert and account for it as an extra so you can create balance. Balance is being able to enjoy yourself without totally throwing caution to the wind and swimming in regret the next day.
Be aware that there are extra calories and sugar to consider as you plan your meal choices too. It is the time to order the lighter meal and go for the extra greens.
