Glowgetter’s Guide to Collagen-Infused Cocktails
As summertime nears, we’re dreaming of our favorite refreshing cocktails. And what could be better than collagen-infused drinks with friends? While collagen won’t make these cocktails a healthy drink to enjoy every day, they are a great to enjoy a cocktail with an added nutrient boost.
Collagen, though similar to gelatin, won’t solidify in cold liquids, making it and ideal addition to just about any drink, alcoholic or not.
Fresh, Collagen-Infused Margarita
Making a fresh margarita may sound complicated, but we promise the taste is worth the bit of extra effort. This recipe from Cookies + Kate focuses on fresh ingredients like the expected lime juice, but the fresh squeezed orange juice makes it something truly special.
To make a collagen-infused margarita, add in a scoop of our collagen blend before you blend it together in the shaker. If you’re going to have a drink, you may as well add some skin and joint-boosting power, right?
Collagen-Infused Châtelain Wine-Tail
The Châtelain may not be as well known as the margarita, but we’re just as excited about it. This “wine-tail” offers a crisp, refreshing taste from the white wine, and offers an antioxidant boost from the pomegranate juice.
In this recipe, you’ll combine white wine, gin, pomegranate, and St-Germain elderflower liqueur in a shaker, and you’re finished! Adding a scoop of collagen will add that nutrient boost without you (or your friends) tasting it.
Daiquiri’s may not be your first thought when wanting a complex-tasting, delicious cocktail, but this recipe may just change your mind. With just three ingredients (plus the collagen) you’ll have a refreshing Daiquiri that’s much better than what you’ll find in a beach-front bar.
With white rum, fresh-squeezed lime juice, simple syrup, and collagen, you can have a quick drink while enjoy the beautiful spring weather.
Cocktails may not be the first thing you think of to add collagen to, but trust us, you won’t taste it and you’ll get an added boost of nutrients. Now, cocktails shouldn’t be your go-to resource for nutrients, but if you’re going to have a drink, make it one of these.
