This non-alcoholic martini has several gut-friendly ingredients and tastes delicious!


When you want to enjoy a cocktail-type drink, but don't want to feel the negative side effects of an alcoholic beverage, then this "mocktini" is a good one to try. Alcohol is a gut irritant and promotes inflammation, so removing alcohol from the recipe makes this beverage easy on the digestive tract. It also eliminates a hangover!

  • Ginger kombucha:

  • ginger is soothing to the digestive tract

  • kombucha is a fermented tea-based beverage that is a source of probiotics

  • Bitters:

  • bitters may help relieve gas, bloating, and upset stomach
