Broths & Broth Drinks

Chicken Broth DrinkChicken Broth Drink

In an 8 fl. oz mug add:

  • 6 oz of warmed organic low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 oz of Hot Pepper Garlic vinegar
  • Squeeze of ½ of a fresh lemon
  • A dashes of celery salt (or to your liking)
  • Fresh ground pepper to your liking
  • Garnish with a lemon wedge, celery and carrot sticks and parsley

 

Recipe Notes:

  • Both broth drinks can be converted into a soothing Hot Toddy by adding 1 ½ oz of alcohol. We found vodka and gin to be the most complementary for these particular flavoured broths but whatever you’d like to try, go for it!
  • For extra healing power add a mixture of herbs to your drink, such as: rosemary, thyme, parsley, basil, sage, mint, etc. Muddle the herbs then pour the warmed broth over them. Stir and enjoy!
  • Have fun experimenting using other bone broths such as; turkey, lamb or fish with different herb combinations and our other gourmet flavoured vinegars. These drinks are guaranteed to warm you to the core on a cold winter’s day!

Health Notes:

  • Drinking bone broth could be called “Nature’s multivitamin” as it is packed with over 19 easy to absorb, essential amino acids and non-essential amino acids, the building blocks of proteins. The natural collagen and gelatin in broth also helps to form connective tissue, support digestive function, your immune system and brain health.
  • While adding a shot of our tasty gourmet flavoured vinegar to your broth drink certainly adds a lovely hit of flavour it is also said to be healthy for you too! Vinegar has been used medicinally for thousands of years.

Shrubs

What is a shrub?

The term "shrub" refers to mixing vinegar with syrup to create what is called a "drinking vinegar," which can then be enjoyed in cocktails.

This is a practise that became popular during America's Colonial Era, where vinegar was used as an alternative to citrus juices in order to preserve berries and other fruits.
