A holistic lifestyle. Drinking mindfully with adaptogens.
Is that an Adaptogen in your Cocktail, or are you just happy to see me? With the drinks industry becoming more and more extreme when it comes to ‘drinking mindfully’, how do you healthily drink full proof spirits in the world of no ABV and low ABV cocktails ruling supreme? Enter, the adaptogen. An adaptogen is an herbal pharmaceutical. Used for thousands of years mostly in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicines , these little miracle crops support your body’s ability to cope with physical and emotional stress. They lost their relevance when instant foods and microwave dinners became all the rage in the 50’s, but they’re back in a big way and making headway into mainstream culture, with multi-million dollar businesses like Moon Juice and Clean Market popping up from coast to coast. Join us as we discuss the uses of these holistic powerhouses, how to incorporate them in a more holistic lifestyle, which are best to counteract the negative effects of drinking: liver cleansing, anti-inflammatory, mood boosting, etc. And how to do all of this safely and mindfully. No activated charcoal and tobacco bitters here! Just a modern-day talk about ways to implement a more mindful lifestyle for ourselves and our industry
