Did you know that being dehydrated can make it harder to think through problems?
I always have a tough time motivating myself to drink water when it gets cold out. Remember the sippy cups?
Well, the thought of “refreshing” herbs, fruits, and veggies like cucumber, mint, and basil doesn’t seem as exciting as it did when it was scorching hot out this summer. Now all I dream about is hot chocolate.
But as I noticed that I was tearing through hand cream and lip balm once the air got cold and dry, I knew I needed new inspiration to swig glass after glass of water again.
Enter holiday cocktails.
In my search for exciting winter drinks, I found things like:
- Warm Pear Toddy,
- Blood Orange and Ginger Punch,
- Fennel Spritzer,
- and of course my favorite Christmas-time drink: Champagne with Domaine de Canton Ginger Liqueur with a Splash of Pomegranate Juice.
They look festive, colorful, and have a nice wintery feel about them.
So, I got out my sippy cup and used these exciting winter cocktail recipes as inspiration to hydrate, say goodbye to dry skin, and keep my brain from fogging up.
