The Morning Cleanse Cocktail by cdbakunas

Do you ever wake up in the morning and say to yourself, “maybe I shouldn’t have had that last beer…or three?” I have to admit that I am victim to this sort of self questioning. It must be a function of working in the beverage industry that so seductively draws you in to excellent food, wine, beer, spirits and once the ball gets rolling, stories are being shared and more corks are pulled, those early AM’s with two young children know no sympathy.

I was fortunate to be introduced to a classic liver cleanser that is so effective that I had to share it.

Use organic fruit whenever possible.

4oz fresh squeezed citrus (orange or grapefruit)

1 whole lemon squeezed

1 whole lime squeezed

1 clove of garlic

1 inch of fresh ginger (remove the fibrous skin with a pairing knife)

1 TBLS of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Take all this and throw it into your blender for 2-3 minutes. Drink away! And don’t forget to brush your teeth, otherwise you’ll smell like a citrus wrapped garlic clove.

This is a bit different….not necessarily a hangover remedy, but more a return to wellness. Very interesting….a friend of mine is really into juicing, so she’d probably concur with you.
