Collagen Infused Cocktails - Yes, We Did.

Collagen Infused Cocktails - Yes, We Did.

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:)
