As residents throughout the State of California and other states have been ordered to stay indoors, many health-conscious people are stuck inside with both anxiety, and few remaining options for keeping fit and healthy during this quarantine.
To reduce our collective anxiety, “quarantine cocktail hour” and #quarantini are fast-growing trends as citizens opt to stay indoors while celebrating their happy hour after a quarantined workday in the house. Even dating apps are suggesting virtual dates of this nature, with some providing software solutions to enable live video chats so that people can safely drink in their own homes while socializing.
That said, most of us do not have the time or bartending skills required to craft a complicated cocktail, leaving us with not much more than a vodka soda, or having to resort to a sugary drink mixer.
Meanwhile, both the health conscious, and average Americans, are increasingly concerned for our ability to maintain our health while trapped inside our apartments and homes. In fact, sugary cocktails may even reduce our immunities, leaving us possibly more susceptible to illness.
However, one eco-friendly company (by sheer coincidence) released a healthy cocktail solution a mere weeks prior to the Coronavirus outbreak.
Rootd made a highly potent and sugar-free vitamin supplement powder that mixes into water for a delicious alternative to choking down a multivitamin pill or chewing on a sugary gummy vitamin. After rising health fears and quarantines, their customers soon noticed that the powder mixes happen to taste great in a vodka soda or vodka water as well.
The company is encouraging people to stay safe and take their daily multivitamins, and despite having no affiliation to the cocktail industry, they have supported the movement for Rootd quarantinis because, as CEO, Adams Chimera, stated “getting your daily dose of vitamins is always a great idea, especially now as many of us are experiencing restricted diets from lack of availability of common foods and it is more important than ever to stay healthy.”
So, if we can enjoy a delicious cocktail with our complete daily doses of multivitamins, why not? The company even released their favorite Rootd cocktail – a vitamin infused acai vodka soda which they claim is “dangerously tasty” and includes 25 natural vitamins, minerals, probiotics and supergreens to take away some of the guilt of happy hour!
Here’s the recipe:
Now is a crucial time for us to focus on improving our health and focus on making the changes necessary to stay safe and healthy. This one just happens to be delicious.
