If you feel like a detox is in order or you’re just looking for something delicious yet non-alcoholic to sip on – this is for you. In this non-alcoholic detox cocktail healthy ingredients like lemon, apple cider vinegar and turmeric are combined to create The Resolution Keeper – so named because it’s so good, you won’t even want to cheat.

This January, more than ever, I feel the healthy food cravings coming on. I had so much good and seriously indulgent food over the Holidays that now, I just wanna eat stuff that’s good for me. And well not only eat – I’m so over alcohol right now and would much rather sip on something healthy than a glass of wine.

I mean, isn’t now the time of year to detox while drinking, instead of needing a detox after drinking? I feel like it is, anyway. And that’s just where this delicious cocktail comes in.

Now there are a few ingredients I feel are always included in get-healthy-detox-do-everything-right schemes. We should start the day with lemon water and a shot of apple cider vinegar to (allegedly) kick-start the cleansing of our bodies, and add some turmeric to anything we can get away with to fight off inflammation. Oh and why not kick start that metabolism with some cayenne?

Now, don’t worry – this won’t become a diet blog anytime soon. Everything in moderation, and in my book that means that healthy always needs to be balanced by tasty.

But that’s just the thing – taking all those oh-so-good-for-you common detox ingredients and putting them together actually makes such a delicious cocktail. Without any sugar or anything that’s not 100% good for you.

No sugar also means a more grown-up taste, something I love love love, and the spices give it a kick to rival a nice jalapeño margarita. And to really bring it over from detox drink to cocktail? A couple of ice cubes and a splash of soda.
