Add These Spring Superfoods to Your Cocktails to Make Them (Sorta) Healthy
Spring is the time of rejuvenation and rebirth. Don’t expect to be personally reborn at winter’s end each year, but do expect to see a lot of great, seasonal spring superfoods reaching their peak deliciousness at this time of year. If you’re looking for an easy way to describe spring superfoods, we suggest using “crisp” when picturing the fresh dark, leafy greens, root vegetables, and thistles in their prime from the end of March to the end of June.
These crisp foods, available at a particularly crisp time of year, are usually enjoyed in the manner that most foods are: We use them in salads. We roast them. We put some of them in smoothies. They're featured as sides and garnishes and everything else that solid foods can appear as in dishes. What you may be surprised to hear, though, is that you can spend that open quarter of your alcoholic year mixing up enviable cocktails that incorporate such spring superfoods. They may not be super healthy, but spring superfood cocktails certainly have more nutritional value than drinks sans superfoods.
