Hello guys!! Welcome back to Dedycated, the First cocktail Blog where Alcohol is not the protagonist!
In such a silent and unprecedented time where we are forced to squeeze our brains to express new skills and creativity from our home offices, unable to get out to practise our regular job in bars and restaurants, I have started a daily show to keep bartenders and cocktail lovers up-to-date and entertained during this moment of break. Executing healthy cocktails, NON alcoholic drinks and superfoods based Low ABV cocktails, I invite you to join me for 1 hour of distraction, learning and positive vibes with ice cubes, shakers and fine glassware!
The Daily show started two weeks ago hosting a first show with more than 300 viewers live and more than 800 reviews in one day! (not bad for a first appearance !
I am so proud that some of you were there with me LIVE to see what we had on the menu for you and what is new here at Dedycated.
This article is going to be a “quick resume of the Drink Recipes with Matcha superfoods – for drinks and cocktails- that I have tested, executed and recorded live on instagram and Facebook live last week at 11:30!
For you guys and girls I decided to upload the list of the cocktails we are presenting on the show daily, in a written form here so you can copy and paste the recipes and information that we share!
As mentioned before, we hosted a Superfoods based Live Seminar, taking as an inspiration and as a first protagonist the Matcha Powder and how to use this superfood in Recipes of Cocktails!
It’s a tough moment out there! we are all seriously affected by the worst moment of crisis in the recent times, where in less than a month we have seen the situation in Europe and Uk (the country where we live) have to face a moment of stop, uncertainty, fear and businesses are forced to shut down and to close due to the Covid-19 , the coronavirus emergency that affects the entire planet !
We are Dedycated, we are a cocktail community that encourages the use of healthy ingredients, healthy mixology and low and Non Alcoholic cocktails!
Now more than ever we want to be useful to all of you forced to stay home and perhaps forced to wait until further notice to catchup with your usual daily routine, job included.
It’s a moment to stop and learn, for you bartenders and cocktail lovers, that are stopping and opening old books to study and trying to switch off from the problems, we are supplying with useful knowledge and tips for you to learn NOW and apply when we will be all soon able to restart creating cocktails for our customers!
Before we jump to the recipes I’m going to introduce the protagonist: let’s know a bit more about the Matcha Superfood and how it will positively affect your creativity and your revenue!
THE POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF DRINKS WITH MATCHA SUPERFOODS:
We have a superfood powder here who is packed in ANTI-OXYDANTS, VITAMINS such as VITAMIN C A and E . High capacity in Absorbing Oxygen Radicals and superlative when it comes to taste!
Due to its plant based origin, it will donate to your cocktails an herbaceous grassy flavour! Absolutely original and interesting if you compare it with the old usual classic ingredients that are very common in mixology! there is an interesting article from the Harvard university that goes deeper on the Plant based topic as well as the importance of “Earth Health” , one subject that I am really interested to share with you.
For heart health protection, your diet needs to focus on the quality of plant foods, and it’s possible to benefit by reducing your consumption of animal foods without completely eliminating them from your diet
These are my cocktail recipes for you to read, try, and to taste from home and at your bar when it’s the right time!
