Here's a great drink to keep you on while you party hop. While the mineral water helps fight exhaustion, the sage and rosemary will boost your brain functions so you can remember an old friend's name! It also makes for a great alternative for energy drinks.

Shake the tangerine juice and sage with ice in a shaker and pour into a glass. Top with mineral water and give a stir with rosemary, just to give it a hint of scent!

If all those cookies, cakes and candy canes are giving you a sugar-rush, try this drink to balance it out.

Add all ingredients into a blender and blend! While the chromium in the Bilberry tea balances sugar levels and cravings, the fibre in the almond butter and milk will absorb all the sugar in your body. We recommend you have it for breakfast the next day!
