Imbibe & Energize with Hackamore Energy {Recipe}

If you're like me, the hustle, bustle and busyness of the work week makes me feel like by the time I've finally made it to the weekend, I'm completely drained! And while sometimes it's necessary, there's no worse feeling than realizing you've wasted away your weekend by sleeping through it.

Insert Hackamore Energy, a premium, non-alcoholic energy beverage with no sweeteners, sugar or calories. While it can be enjoyed as a shot or sipped on the rocks for a boost of caffeine, it's even better enjoyed in a mixed drink, and I'm partnering with Hackamore Energy to share a yummy, refreshing mocktail version that can easily be transformed into a cocktail with a single shot of vodka:

This recipe serves two people. You'll need:

  • Two glasses
  • Ice cubes
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 2 oz grapefruit juice
  • 2 oz Hackamore Energy
  • Ginger beer
  • Lime and grapefruit slices to garnish
  • Optional: 2 oz vodka 

In a shaker or large glass, stir lime juice, grapefruit juice and Hackamore Energy. If you are making the alcoholic cocktail version, stir in vodka as well. Pour over ice evenly between two glasses and top off with ginger beer. To garnish, place one lime slice and one grapefruit slice atop each glass. It's super easy to make, and even easier to enjoy!

Confession: I've made this mocktail two other times after creating and testing this recipe - I'm not usually a fan of citrus flavors, but it's freaking delicious. And that pumped feeling you get after drinking it, like you're ready to take on whatever adventures the weekend holds - it's the best.
