I came across several recipes for a "Good Girl Moonshine". Sounded intriguing. I've never tasted moonshine and I'm not planning to anytime soon, I rather keep my wits about me and not feel like my insides are on fire. Plus I would like to be able to drink it all day long...
The original recipe comes from this book http://
www.trimhealthymama.com/. They are two lovely sisters with a passion for healthy mothering. I've read their Mama's newsletter for years http://aboverubies.org/en/.
So, the basic ingredients seem pretty benign and even healthy. Water, raw apple cider vinegar, ginger, some sweetener... OK, I like where this is going,.. there are many variations floating out there so I decided to try my own.
I try to take the essential oils that help with allergies every day. I basically put 2 drops of each Peppermint, Lemon and Lavender essential oils in about 1 ounce of water or lemonade and swish that around my mouth a few times and then swallow it. I try to do this a couple of times a day, or when my nose reminds me that I'm getting stuffy ;)
So, I thought, why not incorporate that into the "moonshine". I don't have any fresh ginder or Ginger essential oil (yet) so I used the organic ground ginger I had in my pantry.
- 1 pint mason jar
- 1 metal spoon
- 1 1/2 Cups water
- 1/2 to 1 TBSP organic apple cider vinegar (to taste)
- 1 TBSP organic local honey (more or less to taste)
- 2 drops DoTERRA lavender essential oil
- 2 drops DoTERRA lemon essential oil
- 2 drops DoTERRA peppermint essential oil
Dump it all in the mason jar, mix it up. add ice, enjoy!
It's got a tingle to it, and a little bite and then a coolness to your lips and throat.
**Oooh, this would be really good as a slushy! Next batch, I am sticking in the blender!
|Doesn't this look like something|
refreshing to drink on a hot day??
