Roots Juice

I think it’s only fitting to create a signature root veggie juice in honor of our name, don’t ya think!? With that said, this juice couldn’t be more perfect for that title! Roots juice started out as a refreshing drink for my catered events because people wanted something fun yet sweet while staying true to its healthy roots.

Citrus Hibiscus Sangria

Having From the Roots just turned 1 yesterday and the website getting a face-lift, I wanted to celebrate with something, fun, fruity, and flavorful. What better way to celebrate than with a drink?

From the Roots has become way more than I have ever imagined. I started out just posting recipes I have created throughout the years and now it has turned into so much more. Within this year, we have been invited to do pop-up events, catered for parties and grand openings for businesses, collaborated with major health product companies, became a brand ambassador for Further Food, Banza, Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods, and have connected with so many amazing people - YOU!

I couldn’t have done this without YOU, so thank you so much! Well, I could keep rambling, but let’s get to the recipe! I made this into a mock-tail form originally for a Galentine’s Day event. It was such a big hit! But TBH, it would be an even more hit if you added wine or prosecco to it…  But you can do whatever you like! ;)

The Holiday Mule

I used to be a bartender for a catering company so I’m surprised that this is my first official adult bubbly post. But to be honest, I’m not much of a drinker. I would rather eat my calories than drink them if you know what I’m saying! When I do drink, it’s usually at social gatherings. So, with the holidays in full swing, here is my all-time favorite holiday drink!

Moscow mules are very simple to make. No need to make a fancy simple syrup or use various spirits, all you really need is:

Lime

Ginger beer

Vodka

Ice

To take your moscow mule to a seasonal level, you can add natural fruit juices like pomegranate, cherry, and cranberry. These fruits are great for your health and would be a great healthy addition to your beverage.  I’ve been loving the holiday mule with cherry juice as cherries are great for exercise recovery and muscle soreness. During the holiday season where there is a higher risk of cold and flu, cherry juice can strengthen your immune system.

Watermelon Lime Refresher

This drink was actually made by mistake as I was creating an agua fresca recipe which is coming to the blog soon!

Here’s the story if you are interested: I only had thirty minutes to make the recipe, take pictures of my lovely creation, and clean up before working out so I had to go fast! My husband helped me out by walking the dogs so that I could focus. As soon as he came back I would be done. It would have been perfect timing!
