The Flu Crusher – The Micheladas Cubana

This is a fighter all right. The MC is the head-soothing, mucus-decimating nemesis to influenza. The Tabasco and jalapenos in the clamato sauce contain capsaicin which, say scientists at Bastyr University, Seattle, cut off neurotransmitters that trigger headaches. The chilies also clear mucus from your nose and lungs.

 

How to make it 

Blend a portion of a dull lager in with a portion of a glass of clamato, 8-10 hints of Tabasco, and a sprinkle of lime juice.

 

The Pressure Releaser – Cocktail The Piquant

An easy-to-make, alcohol-free Mary-alike to help lower your blood pressure and protect your kidneys. According to a new study from Hong Kong-based nutrition researchers, onion significantly lowers your stress signifiers, such as LDL cholesterol. Also, the antioxidant lycopene, found in tomatoes, decreases your blood pressure, according to the American Heart Journal.

 

How to make it 

Mix 3l of tomato juice, 1tsp of grated onion, and ½ tsp of Worcestershire sauce. Stir well and chill before serving.

 

 

The Nutrient Replacer – The Tomato Gardener

A simple-to-make, headache-squashing mixed drink that returns to your framework what liquor takes out. “Water-rich juices help flush away toxins from your body while replacing essential nutrients lost through dehydration,” says Aine O’Connor of the British Nutrition Foundation. Tomatoes and carrot juice both score profoundly in supplements that detoxify and reestablish your body after a gorge.

How to make it 

Blend 2l new tomato juice, 750ml carrot juice, parsley, salt, and pepper. Stir and serve over ice.

 

 

The Heart Strengthener – The Red Eye

It’s an acquired taste and featured in Cocktail, but that’s where the Tom Cruise similarities end. A study in The Archives of Internal Medicine found ethanol in small amounts, such as those found in 350ml lager, reduces your risk of a heart attack. The Rowett Institute likewise found tomato juice has a heart-safeguarding impact.

 

The most effective method to make it

“Empty 180ml of tomato juice into a glass, trailed by 350ml ale and a crude egg (more protein and vitamin D than cooked egg). Now down it in one,” says Tom Orton, a mixologist at drinks specialists Cocktail Box.
