Hope y’all had a happy Thanksgiving. And to my international friends, hope your Thursday was swell. I savored the day with my boyfriend’s family over in New Jersey! The food was a surprise (interesting Dominican dishes), but everything else felt right at home (laughter and hugs).
I noticed that while everyone enjoyed the holiday, many friends didn’t have a great time the morning after. And with the mulled cider, eggnog, and coquito flowing, who can resist enjoying a holiday libation? So here’s another drink, but more on the healthful side.
I borrowed this recipe from Don’t Mess With Mama, and as she explains it, electrolytes are basically salts. When a person heavily exercises (sweats) or “expels fluid,” he or she loses these electrolytes. This juice is meant to be a replacement for Gatorade (which isn’t great for you anyway), and I think it’s tasty for just a nice juice in general. Whether you’re dehydrated from energizing or enjoying spirits, I highly recommend this flavorful, hydrating drink.
