2 oz quality American Bourbon (Whiskey)

1 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice

Egg white

Polar® Vanilla Seltzer

(if you need to sweeten it add a teaspoon of agave)

Vigorously shake the whiskey, lemon juice and egg white in a shaker. Once there is a bit of froth pour over ice in a double old-fashioned glass. Top generously with Polar® Seltzer.

At a recent food trade show here in Manhattan, I was introduced to Thrive Ice Cream; a brand of ice cream that not only tastes amazing but is actually good for you. I am not a person who is overly concerned with healthy snacking because I try to just use common sense when I snack, but to have a sweet treat that I already enjoy be fortified with protein, potassium and vitamins? This sounded like a good deal to me! Continue reading Thrive Ice Cream: A Delicious and Nutritious Treat
