Three SIBO Friendly Summer Cocktails

With long days, warm nights, weekend getaways, and epic adventures, summer is the season where routines take a holiday and we let relaxation rule. Enjoy three summer cocktail recipes from The Good LFE Cookbook. These recipes follow the Low Fermentation Eating diet and are designed to be SIBO and IBS friendly while promoting gut health.

 

Blood Orange & Rosemary Vodka Cocktail

This looks and sounds like a complicated cocktail, but it's not. Even if you're new to mixology you'll find this cocktail easy to make. The sweet tartness of the blood orange juice infused with fragrant rosemary is a palate pleaser. 

Servings: 8 cocktails | Lactose Free, Vegan, Gluten Free

 

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup blood orange juice
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 1 cup vodka
  • Ice, for serving
  • Lime wedges, for serving

  

Preparation

  • In a small saucepan, heat the blood orange juice and rosemary over low heat for 10 minutes. Allow the rosemary to infuse another 20 minutes. Remove the rosemary and discard. Allow juice to cool.
  • Combine rosemary-infused blood orange with the vodka. Pour over ice and serve with a lime wedge. 

 

Simple Margarita 

What you won't find in this recipe is Triple Sec - because it's loaded with sugar. The juice from a sweet, tangy orange and a bit of sugar essentially eliminates the need for the liqueur. This refreshing cocktail can be paired with Mexican flavors, or just about anything else. 

Servings: 1 cocktail | Lactose Free, Vegan, Gluten Free

 

 

Ingredients

  • Juice from 1 lime
  • Juice from 1 orange
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • Lime slices, for serving

  

Preparation

  • Shake all ingredients in an ice shaker. Serve on the rocks with a slice of lime.
