    As proud members of the Health & Wellness community, we run a pretty tight ship of focusing on just that: Health & Wellness. During the holiday season however, vice often comes before Vitamin C and at Amandean, we say, " Why not have a little of both?!" Afterall, balance is key to longevity and happiness.

    It's almost 2018 and bartenders, mixiologists, and biohackers alike are not afraid to experiment when it comes to combining ingredients in ways the world has never seen before. At Amandean, we went bold and tried some collagen-infused cocktails using our Premium Grass-Fed Collagen Collagen Peptides. The Results: Delicious.

    Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and beneficial for your hair, skin, nails, eyes, teeth, cartilage, bones, tendons, internal organs, arteries, blood vessels, and the immune system. Furthermore, we've selected cocktails recipes that are rich in Vitamin C, which used in combination with Collagen helps to promote collagen production. So you can indulge in some of your favorite cocktails feeling guilt-free...or almost guilt-free:)

    3. Pear Bourbon Smash

    Pear Bourbon

    This pear bourbon cocktail mixes overripe pears, maple syrup, allspice, and bourbon to make a great wintery cocktail infused with collagen.

    Ingredients (Serves 2)

    • 1 very ripe pear
    • 3 oz bourbon
    • 1 oz maple syrup
    • 1 scoop of Amandean's Grass-Fed Collagen Peptides
    • 1/2 oz lemon juice
    • Diet Ginger Ale (to taste)
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract or the seeds scraped from 1/3 of a vanilla bean
    • 1/4 tsp allspice
    • Ice


    1. Slice the pear in half. Scoop out the seeds and stem. Dice the pear into small pieces and put it in a medium bowl. Mash the pear with a fork or a potato masher. Transfer the pear to a fine mesh strainer set over a wide-mouthed measuring cup or bowl. Press the pear pulp against the strainer to get as much juice as possible, along with some of the pulp.
    2. Once you have the pear juice, add it to a shaker with the rest of the ingredients (and collagen powder) and shake vigorously to mix. Fill two glasses with ice and divide the drink between them.
