If you are feeling bloated and bubbly from all of the dairy, sweets, and heavy dishes that are popular this time of year, we have the perfect drink to help you keep the party going while supporting your digestive health. 

For this recipe, Zoey took a winter twist on a classic Sangria and added cinnamon, rosemary, Elix Ginger Aide, and cranberries. This combination is not only super festive for this time of year, but these ingredients are packed with lots of health benefits to help reduce inflammation, support your skin and hair health, boost digestion, and dispel cold & flu symptoms—making it the perfect digestif to serve at your next holiday feast.
