Detox Cocktail is Just What the Doctor Ordered

detox_cocktail.jpgA while back we told you about our dream of creating a prune-based laxative cocktail and calling it the "Pootini." We haven't done that yet, but we've found a cocktail that recalls the Master Cleanse, a two-week juice fast we tried once on a dare. We spent the entire time drinking cayenne lemonade, wondering why we weren't hungry, and looking into the toilet saying "I don't recall eating that."

This detox cocktail is the best of all worlds - similar ingredients to the Master Cleanse lemonade, without the commitment, and you can get a buzz out of it. Sounds like we know what we're doing this weekend.

The Detox
3 oz vodka (I used Martin Ryan)
2 oz fresh lemon juice
1 oz honey-rosemary syrup (see recipe near bottom of this post)
dash cayenne pepper
For the rim: cayenne, puebla chile powder, and date sugar (recipe below)

Glass: cocktail glass
Tools: shaker, strainer

Rub a lemon slice along the outer rim of the cocktail glass and dip it in the chile and date sugar mixture. Pour the other ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake until well chilled. Strain, enjoy, and repeat until your system is fully cleansed.

To make the rim mixture simply blend together 3-4 tbsp date sugar (found at most health food stores) with 1 tsp puebla chile powder and 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper. If you're spice averse you can exclude the cayenne pepper on the rim, since there'll already be a dash of it in the cocktail.
