"It is easy to make a healthy cocktail! We simply blend our favorite fruits with some water (and/or alcohol - if you choose), ice and then maple syrup or honey to sweeten it! That way we are getting a cocktail packed with nutrients, that is also fun and delicious, great for relaxing on Friday after work. There is no need for us to drink cocktails that are loaded with sugar - they will only weaken our immune system and make us feel worse later! These healthy cocktails are also great party and entertaining food that can energize us before a night out! Also perfect for a Sunday afternoon on the beach. Enjoy it all." Liana
