The Original Quarantini Cocktail. If you're stuck in lockdown, self isolation or quarantine and missing that social drink - here is the perfect quarantine cocktail to boost immunity and refresh your taste.
Meet the Quarantini - An easy Lemon Honey Martini with emergency vitamin C! It's the most delicious way to boost your immunity. Quarantini and chill anyone?
What is a Quarantini?
It’s an alcoholic drink you drink in lockdown. It is that straight forward... literally any alcoholic drink you are drinking! Under these circumstances you have my permission to call it a Quarantini on principle of being in lockdown or quarantine.
This recipe however is the Original Quarantini - all the enjoyment of a Martini with added benefits of a health and immunity boost. A Honey Lemon Martini with optional quaratine powdered Vitamin C boost. Don't worry if you're not into a martini, either switch out gin for vodka - or go ahead and call any drink you’re currently enjoying a Quarantini if you are busy social distancing.
What ingredients does a Quarantini need?
With the world is chaos and literally everything low in supermarkets, luckily you only need a few ingredients to make a Quarantini. I'm sure you already have everything you need. Vodka or gin, lemon (or lemon juice), honey, water (i'm sure you have that) and a boost of vitimin C is you desire.
How do I add vitimin C to a Quarantini?
Firstly, this is optional. Yet, I do recommend it. It does give you a health immunity boost, plus it also adds a bit of fun and authenticity to the Original Quarantini recipe:
Rim of your glass. Just like you would with salt. Truly authentic and and beautiful cocktail.
Ingredient in Quarantini. Add it to your martini and shake away.
Take it straight. Oooooh. A shot :) A healthy one in this case. Take it like a shooter. Take a straight shot of your Vitamin C before taking a big drink of your quarantini.
