Apple Cider Vinegar and Tequila: 5 Yummy Cocktails!


Many of you are already familiar with the plentiful and natural health benefits raw Apple Cider Vinegar provides! Many sources have linked this probiotic substance with weight loss, helping people lose an additional 1-2 pounds every month when ingested as a diet aid. It also helps lower our body’s internal blood sugar, proving well-documented anti-glycemic effects. Other health benefits range from helping to lower cholesterol rates to prevent the absorption of fats from the foods we eat.

Tequila is by far the healthiest choice of all the hard alcohols out there, with benefits ranging from containing less sugar than rum or vodka to helping fight cholesterol. If you are consuming real tequila derived from 100% pure blue agave, you are also benefitting from its natural probiotic qualities or adding to the healthy bacteria that populate our intestines.

So why not combine the two substances and enjoy healthier cocktails? Here at The Authentic Gay, it is our mission to serve you healthy, trendy, and yummy advice. That’s why we have collected and crafted: 5 Yummy Apple Cider Vinegar and Tequila Cocktails.

For our Apple Cider Vinegar, we prefer Bragg Organic Unfiltered Raw Apple Cider Vinegar.

For our choice of Tequila, we use a standard 100% blue agave Blanco choice, Camarena Tequila Silver (picture listed above). If you go with another option, make sure that it is derived from 100% blue agave and was produced from the Jalisco region in Mexico.
