It’s that time of year again…a new year! It’s a great time to set resolutions and re-commit to practices that help you feel happy and healthy.
For Ocean Vodka, our resolutions include continuing to focus on the “green” practices that are so important to our brand, from seed to finished spirit. With that in mind, Ocean Vodka has joined with local organic farmer and Glow Juice Maui owner Craig King to present some “fit and fresh” juice recipes that are not just delicious but nutritious as well! It is designed using ingredients from the Ocean Vodka Organic Farm and Distillery: fresh sugarcane juice, and strawberry and lavender from our Martini Garden.
Combined with local fruits and vegetables from the rich soils of Maui, including coconut, celery, parsley, cilantro, cucumbers, passionfruit, ginger, pineapple, papaya and more, these libations are sure to bring on your glow in the New Year.
As a member of the grass family, sugarcane juice has a high potency equivalent to wheatgrass juice. Sugarcane is rich in calcium, chromium, cobalt, copper, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, potassium and zinc. It also contains iron and vitamins A, C, B1, B2, B3, B5, and B6, plus a high concentration of phytonutrients (including chlorophyll), antioxidants, proteins, soluble fiber and numerous other health supportive compounds.
Here are two drinks that you can try!
