8Greens Caipirinha: if you have made it through all the recipes we have posted from the 8Greens Cookbook well done! You definitely deserve a cocktail, and we have discovered that 8Greens can help here too..... Being healthy and taking care of what we put into our body is very important. But constant perfection is an impossible goal: kicking back is just as important. With this in mind, I teamed up with @juanmsantacruz at Casa Cruz in London to see how we could use 8Greens to add some virtuous fizz to a few of my favorite cocktails. If you are looking for inspiration try the following at the end of a long week, or experiment for yourself. See link in bio to find 7 more great 8Greens cocktails and so much more.
