Say hello to the Blood Orange Cayenne Cleanser! This spicy mocktail is the perfect way to kick off the new year (for a happier mind & a healthier gut!).

With the new year comes new resolutions. Whether you’re trying to cut down on sugar and/or alcohol, be more mindful, exercise more, or just give your body & mind a break after the holidays… we hear you!

It’s important to use the new year as a time of reflection. Figure out what’s working for your body and what isn’t. From there, implement change in order to better serve yourself. For many, “dry” January is a go-to following the holiday months. We understand the desire to cut back on alcohol which is why we wanted to share this kombucha mocktail recipe which features our Cayenne Cleanse flavor.

Combine the tart taste of blood oranges and lemons with the spice of cayenne and the natural effervescence from kombucha for a delicious combination that’s perfect to sip any time of day!
