D1 Potato Vodka launches clean living cocktails with Rivington Bar & Grill

As the January detox becomes an annual ritual, D1 Potato Vodka has teamed up with the Rivington Bar & Grill in Shoreditch to serve up some clean living-inspired cocktails; complete with superfood ingredients packed with rejuvenating nutrients for a healthier start to 2016.

If you like Greener Colada – a cleaner take on a traditionally calorie laden Pina Colada with antioxidants from metabolism-boosting Matcha green tea, low GI natural sweetener, agave syrup, and lactose-free coconut milk to replace heavy cream.

That’ll pack a Popeye Punch – flu-fighting ingredients including spinach and fresh ginger have been added to an aloe vera base to refresh the classic and zesty Mojito.

Mary’s Bloody Healthy Remedy – the go-to hangover cure has been given an added boost with 2016’s hottest new superfood, mineral-rich seaweed, along with a rim of low-calorie chia seeds for added protein, fibre and magnesium.

Hard Health Shot – a lively take on the nutritious wheatgrass shot, featuring vodka and the powerful and concentrated nutrients of wheatgrass.

Rivington Grill bar manager Francesco Lombardi commented, “I wanted to create something that provided Londoners with a healthier way to enjoy cocktails this January; feeding its obsession around superfoods but retaining the sense of fun and relaxation of alcohol.

“I’ve been inspired by the great efforts taken by D1 Potato Vodka to create such a pure liquid. I wanted to take that uncompromising approach to create drinks that deliver better nutritional value and a cleaner taste. It also allows those not involved in Dry January to enjoy a tasty but guilt-free alcoholic drink and those who have fallen off the wagon to indulge without the remorse.”
