Shuffle Drink Thursday: The Chloe Cleanse

clo

For most of us who aren’t Gwyneth Paltrow (sorry, Gwynny, see you next week) it’s not practical for us to spend $400 every time we need a cleanse.  So we turn to our other lifestyle Guru: Chloe, the dearly departed B from Apartment 23.

Put on your softest robe (stolen from the Four Seasons) and bribe the person closest to you to mix up this spiked spa drink that will let you detox and lose those bags without being a drag.

To make this kicked up spa water you will need  the following:

-1 cup of water

-Juice of 2 squeezed lemons

-1 shot of vodka

-1/2 cucumber  (sliced)

-A pinch of minced ginger (approx. 1/4 to 1/2 tsp)

-Extra lemon slices (optional)

Mix everything together in a big girl tumbler and stir.  Then pop in the fridge to let the water absorb the flavors (an hour or so).

You can also scale this up if you want to make a pitcher or share it with a friend!

Cucumbers act as an anti-inflammatory to balance out the burn from the booze while the ginger and lemon help you keep your yogurt down.

Feel refreshed and ready to take on the day!
