That's right, we said it! Drink cocktails that detox and boost your health.


Let's get real for a moment. We all know we want to shed a few pounds after the holidays, so we're eating better and exercising more, but taking away momma's well-deserved cocktail -- yeah right! Thank goodness that health conscious restaurant owner Rainlove Lampariello created a cocktail that is only 181 calories! Now that's something to toast about. Enjoy!

(Adapted From Rouge Tomate)

2 1/2 ounces tequila
1/3 ounce kaffir lime leaf syrup
1 ounce carrot purée (or carrot juice)
1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
1/2 ounce egg whites
Lime zest and lime slice.

Combine the ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously. (Drinks with egg whites require longer and harder shaking for the egg to emulsify.) Strain into a chilled cocktail glass, and garnish with the lime zest and lime slice.

Yields: 1 serving.

Note: To make kaffir lime syrup, blend 3 or 4 fresh kaffir lime leaves with 4 ounces of agave (or simple) syrup, steep for two hours, then strain. For the carrot purée, blend 6 ounces of cooked carrots with 2 ounces of carrot juice until smooth.

In related news, the PGA voted Tiger Woods Player of the Year .. sources are unsure whether they were actually referring to golf though!
