The "Healthiest" Alcoholic Drink! The Primal Daiquiri

 It’s the end of the week, which means you’ve spend each day eating right, training hard, and looking to enhance your quality of life. After working hard all week you deserve a little relaxing time with friends. Perhaps this relaxing time (most likely) involves some alcoholic beverages. Maybe you feel like enjoying a few of these alcoholic beverages. Yet you’re faced with a dilemma, you want to have some drinks but you don’t want to completely dump your hard work down the drain. You want to enjoy a beverage (or three) without all the sugar in wine and mixed drinks. You want something refreshing but you don’t want all that gluten and bloating that comes with beer. Plus tonight you’re not really feeling sipping on some straight whiskey or vodka! So what's one to do when faced with this tough decision? 
Well, you could always enjoy a “Primal Daiquiri"! 

With the “Primal Daiquiri” you’ll avoid all that unnecessary sugar, it’s gluten free, and tastes excellent. It’s about as Paleo as you can get when it comes to getting a little “loose” on the weekend. Here’s how it’s made. 

You’ll need ... 

  • 1 cocktail shaker
  • Ice 
  • 2oz of your favorite white rum (not spiced)
  • Juice from half a lime 
  • Soda water (plain with no added sugar)
  • Stevia (optional)

  In a cocktail shaker, add a couple cubes of ice, lime juice, rum, and stevia. Shake the ingredients vigorously for a couple seconds. Take off the lid and dump the contents into a small tumbler or tall tumbler depending on your taste. Then top the drink off with soda water. Remember, the larger the glass the more diluted the flavor. 

 So what makes “Primal Daiquiri” so special? Well here are a few facts! 

  • The lime juice when processed by your body leaves behind an alkaline “ash”. Alkaline foods are more beneficial to the body than acid producing foods. 
  • Lime juice also helps nullify the insulin response of the alcohol. 
  • Rum is gluten free, this means that even people who have a sensitivity or allergy to gluten can enjoy
  • Stevia is an all natural sweetener that registers a zero on the glycemic index. 

 So next time you’re getting together with your favourite people try mixing up some “Primal Daiquiris” and enjoy with out the worry of completely destroying your hard work! Remember to drink responsibly and enjoy.
