Probiotic ingredients, I have three questions for you!
- Is your gut healthy??
An healthy gut is linked to many good things in life! A good mood, a healthy digestive system also helps your mental health, prevention of disease and an improved memory skills !
Many studies have reported in the past decade a good connection between the complex system of bacteria in our intestines and the relative benefits the body may see when we look after it through a goo diet.
ACCORDING TO THIS STUDY BY “Web MD” ; you can check out the 16 actions on how gut bacteria relates to an improved whole body health!
It is shown how the gut is linked to your brain, your kidneys, your heart !
2) What stands for “probiotic drinks”?
Probiotic drinks are those who, obtained by fermentation, using a scoby, or yeasts, or bacteria, they are so called “pro-biotic” meaning “for life” , they add good bacteria to your every day diet, and are keys of an overall health.
The 6 main roles of probiotic drinks are:
- ASSISTING THE VITAMIN B ASSUMPTION;
- PROTECT AGAINST EXTERNAL TOXINS
- IMPROVE THE EFFICIENCY OF THE GASTRO INTESTINAL SYSTEM
- BOOSTING IMMUNE SYSTEM

3) Why are the probiotic drinks so important in a cocktail bar that focuses on homemade preparations?
Making probiotics is easy, simple and you can get so used to them in just few days that you will never stop brewing new stuff on daily basis as soon as you try your first one!
Making sodas, ginger beers or SEKANJABIN… brewing kombucha or tepache will just retire patience and few days of natural fermentation process, but consider how many kombucha you can make with just one scoby bought at 4£, and using an initial batch of black tea that would cost you less than 80p?
With few useful tools such as a couple of mason jars, few living bacteria used as starter for your fermentation, things like yeasts or scoby or kefir grains!
Making these incredibly good home-made drinks, you will realise on how easy you can substitute your liqueurs with a new bunch of healthy good stuff! Spending a very low initial budget, and keeping them consistent by the time!

OVERCOMPLICATING THINGS, COCKTAIL MENU AS BOOKS OF ENIGMAS
Have you ever wondered why do bartenders today like so much overcomplicate the cocktail list of their bar, ending up just drinking a cocktail with at least one of tree ingredients inside that you have never heard of and discovering something unreal, amazing and of unforgettable taste?
Yes, I was one of them too, when I moved to London in 2012 and I discovered that I was not up to date with the trends, with the knowledge of who was working in the city from years, it just all seemed too crazy, for me that I was still shaking cocktails with fresh common fruits, I soon realised that the trends in this era of incredible creativity are changing fast and you can’t miss any of them…
I PROMISED TO MYSELF that I would run to study fast and keep myself as much knowledgeable as possible, but my desire is to play with terminology and a glossary that would be easy to create and obviously for the guests to understand.
Creating an ingredient with “appealing name” such as SEKANJABIN
MUST BE OUR FOCUS IF WE WANT TO LIGHT THE ATTENTION OF OUR GUESTS, but easy to replicate, to understand and to re-create.
Because that was also one of my concerns, we must educate drink lovers to be able to try replicate things at home, it really helps engaging connection with our guests!
CHEERS TO YOUR HEALTH AND WEALTH!
