How to Make Tasty Anti-Aging Cocktails

Walnut Chocolatini

This delicious and decadent drink contains walnuts, yummy nuts that are packed with powerful antioxidants. These antioxidants can whisk away free radicals in your skin, controlling the effects of aging and keeping you looking as young as you feel.

Ingredients:

¼ cup ground walnuts
1 oz vanilla vodka
1 oz Irish cream liqueur
½ oz dark chocolate liqueur
Orange wedge
Dark chocolate shavings

Directions:

To put this bad boy together, you’ll need to spread out your ground walnuts on a flat surface right out of the gate. Using your orange wedge, wet the rim of a martini glass before turning it upside down and pressing it into your ground walnuts.

Use a shaker to mix up your Irish cream liqueur, vodka, and dark chocolate liqueur. Strain the contents into your martini glass and sprinkle some dark chocolate shavings on top. Enjoy!

Pour ice and your mix into the glass, topped with your vodka. Stir. Serve. Yum.

Strawberry Peach Sangria

It doesn’t have to be summer for you to enjoy a nice glass of sangria! You can sip on this healthy treat all year round because it tastes great and it’s great for you too.
