Sure, you can grab a yogurt for some probiotics. But it’s way more fun to reach for one of these cocktails for those gut-friendly bacteria! This drink is inspired by a strawberry daiquiri, yet calorie friendlier. I find it tastier, too, since not overly sweet. What’s in the cocktail? It’s based on rum and includes fresh mint, lime juice, ginger, and strawberries. But the highlight is the sparkling probiotic beverage … Farmhouse Culture Strawberry Hibiscus Gut Punch Sparkling Probiotic Veggie Drink, to be specific, which contains 4 billion probiotic cultures in a bottle. Now that’s a heck of a lot of good bugs! I found the veggie drink at Whole Foods Market, FYI. Cheers!
