You made it to the end of another year—and that deserves a little celebration. Yet, your role as a caregiver means New Year’s Day starts early, and you have no time for a hangover.
One company may have created a solution: a mixer that not only enhances your celebratory drink but also replenishes your body with what alcohol depletes.
“I wanted to come up with an option for people to mix their alcohol with, something that was supportive,” said Chad Worley, founder of Balance Your Buzz, “with electrolytes and vitamins and no sugar, and didn’t give you that glucose spike and then drop you off a few hours later.”
Full of good stuff
Developed by a naturopathic doctor, the BYB packets can easily be mixed with water and your spirit of choice to create a mixed drink full of vitamins C, B1 and B6, as well as all the electrolytes and antioxidants your body needs to stay balanced as you celebrate.
With flavors like lemon lime, apple cider, coconut blood orange, mixed berry and passion fruit, each packet is mixed with 6 to 8 ounces of water and 2 ounces of a spirit like vodka or tequila (maybe some rum?) to create a replenishing and hydrating drink without the huge dose of extra sugar normally found in cocktails. With only 10 calories and 8 grams of carbs, BYB is also vegan, gluten-free and keto-friendly.
Not just for cocktails
Maybe you overindulged and forgot your BYB packets at home? BYB is also an effective recovery drink.
“Go ahead and drink one of these before bed, drink one in the morning, and I guarantee you will feel so much better if you do,” Worley said.
They’re also not just for cocktails: BYB can make a healthy mocktail—full of flavor without the extra sugar, which could be an alternative for that sugary morning juice.
We all deserve a little celebration this week, so start the new year off on a better foot—and leave the hangover behind.
