I was lucky to discover a hangover prevention product called Morning Recovery! If you watched the video you can see my journey from skeptic to believer. So as you can imagine, I was so excited when they asked to collaborate on a cocktail series featuring their powerful product. Enter the without consequence series. I'm pairing Morning Recovery with some of your favorite spirits to create a cocktail so indulgent, and prepped + ready to prevent any hangover shenanigans.
This vibrant and effervescent cocktail packs a powerful flavor-punch that will hit your tastebuds hard, but not your head the next morning. The earthy notes of the bourbon intertwine perfectly with the bright acidy of lemon and blackberry, as your nose is tickled with champagne and herbaceous basil. If you lean toward the sweeter tooth side of life, you can adjust the honey to your liking. Of course the Morning Recovery will ensure your adult beverage is loaded with beneficial vitamins and nutrients so you’re ready to face the next day, no question!
