Since we tend to focus on sugary desserts and drinks here at Sugar Loco (duh, right?), we figured we’d help out our more health-inclined viewers with some healthier cocktails. Don’t worry, they’re still delicious – but since they have veggies in them, you’ll have more of an excuse to indulge!
We’ll start with a new veggie cocktail from Mercadito in Chicago. The brainchild of their mixologists, the Tippling Bros. (Tad Carducci and Paul Tanguay), it’s like the V-8 juice we all grew up with – but one better! I guess the folks over at V-8 didn’t think to add everyone’s favorite ingredient , alcohol!
Seriously though, this drink is chock-full of the the nutrients we all need to continue to live long, happy lives of eating delicious desserts all day. (Wait…not everyone does that? Am I supposed to be eating non-dessert foods?). Give this drink a try, and if you’re not feeling healthier as soon as you finish it I guess you’ll just have to keep drinking them till you do!
