Supercharge Your Seasonal Brunches with the Ultimate Gut-Loving Cocktail
Being your best self shouldn’t mean you have to abstain over the festive period. With this twist on the bruncher’s favourite – a zingy Bloody Mary, you can have your cake and eat it too.
We’ve combined gut-loving fermented goodness with nutrient-dense seaweed and the antioxidant zip of tomato juice. Subtly spicy and seriously refreshing, it’s the ultimate stomach-soother for the morning after the night before.
Kimchi and Seaweed Bloody Mary | Serves 1
cup tomato juice (not from concentrate)
4 tablespoons kimchi (you can easily find a good quality one at Whole Foods or Planet Organic)
1 heaped teaspoon wakame seaweed flakes
1 teaspoon soy sauce/ tamari
2 shots vodka
4 dashes Tabasco (or more to taste)
4 dashes celery bitters
1. Combine all the ingredients, except the Tabasco and bitters in a cocktail shaker and half fill with ice
2. Shake vigorously until combined and the kimchi starts to break up a little
3. Strain into a chilled glass over fresh ice and season with Tabasco and bitters to taste
