Holiday Over-indulgence ? Try This Digestive Aid “Cocktail”


It’s hard not to overdo things a bit this time of year, and New Year’s Eve IS just around the corner. So if you find yourself in need of something to ease digestive discomfort, try this “cocktail” from Arsy Vartanian at Rubies and Radishes that includes several of my favorite self-help health items… cider vinegar, ginger and lemon juice. She mentions whipping this up when her husband wasn’t feeling well after a night of drinking, eating poor quality quesadillas (maybe a step above the bell!) and ice-cream bars, so it’s not just for holiday over-indulgence. 🙂


Digestion Mocktail

[Printable Version]

2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh ginger water
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
8 ounces sparkling water
raw honey to taste

Pour over ice and enjoy!

Ginger Tea/Water
3 inch piece of ginger
2 cups water

  1. Peel ginger and slice thinly
  2. Boil the ginger in water for 10-15 mins.

*Note: the more ginger you use and the longer you boil, the stronger it will be!

      Ah ha ha, and you don’t need to wait until you’re in need of some digestive aid to make it. It would be a great general health tonic and preventative measure to drink on a regular basis. 🙂
