We’ve never done a cleanse before, but starving ourselves got a lot more interesting after we learned about this cocktail from Akvinta Vodka. The spirits company took the popular Master Cleanse drink, which combines lemon, syrup and cayenne pepper and added vodka. Now, we’re pretty sure that you’re not supposed to drink hooch when you’re doing a cleanse, but who cares?! Now we’re that much more likely to pull it off, though after a few of these, we think breaking our fast for some late-night pizza might be pretty tempting. Check out the recipe below, and start cleaning out that system (ish).
The Master Cleanse Cocktail:
2 oz Akvinta
3/4 oz lemon juice
2 dashes or muddled piece of cayenne pepper
1/2 oz grade b maple syrup
Shake and strain into an ice filled Collins glass garnish with a pepper slice
