Shaman’s Medley – A Complex and Bitter Non-Alcoholic Cocktail

It can be a challenge to match the complexity of a well-made (alcoholic) cocktail. However, when one considers all the elements that contribute to make cocktails enjoyable, it’s simpler to create non-alcoholic counterparts. The Shaman’s Medley is the perfect example because it incorporates egg white to give it that silky mouthfeel you find in so many classics. The highlight of this recipe is DHŌS Bittersweet, a non-alcoholic aperitif.

P.S. – There is no substitution for moderation, but there are two supplements that I take when I’m doing a reset. Traditional Medicinals Organic Detox Tea and this Liver Cleanse Detox and Repair supplement. Just keep in mind that I’m not a doctor, and this isn’t medical advice.
