Iron Hill Brewery in Bengaluru has specifically curated some cocktails keeping in mind the Covid-19 pandemic and the need to protect immunity even more. These cocktails come with a mix of herbs, mixers, fruits and bitters with a splash of gin.
Gin with smoked rosemary, fresh lime juice, wild red bitters, orange oils and tonic water. This helps you to boost your immunity with a mix of orange and rosemary, which are excellent sources of Vitamin C. Rosemary also acts as a cognitive stimulant to help humans improve their memory performance, focus, intelligence and quality.
Gin with smoked thyme, honey booster mix, fresh lime juice, thyme tincture and ginger ale. Thyme is packed with Vitamin C and is also a good source of Vitamin A.
It also relieves the upper airways and treats infections. Star anise is also known to treat respiratory infections, nausea, constipation and other digestive issues. Honey has shown immune-boosting and anti-cancer benefits, thus making it your favourite secret energy drink.
Gin mixed with kaffir lime leaf, orange, fresh lime juice, vanilla syrup & tonic water. This may boost your immunity through a mix of orange, vanilla and kaffir lime leaf as vanilla helps induce sleep with fewer calories and carbohydrates.
The lime leaves also help stimulate the digestive system, assisting in warding off constipation and indigestion. It can also improve oral health as the oils eliminate harmful bacteria on the gums.
Gin smashed with basil, red apple, spiced jaggery solution, fresh lime juice and ginger ale. The essential oils in the herb can help lower your cholesterol and basil improves blood flow by allowing muscles and blood vessels to relax.
The red colour in the apple is known to be a product of anthocyanins, a class of heart-disease-fighting polyphenols; and jaggery acts as a natural sweetener and provides energy over an extended period of time.
