With 90% of our time spent indoors at the moment, and no clear markers of basic routine set to guide us humans in a general direction, the lines between coffee time and alcohol time can begin to get very blurred, particularly on weekends, when there are no Zoom calls to be cognitive for. While we are all doing our best to stay healthy, we are also not, not doing our best to try all of the Natty wines we got delivered over the course of a day. A la Adelaide Hills @ home edition. The word ‘Quarantini’ has been offered up via the internet on many occasions in the past weeks, but what exactly is a Quarantini? We’d like to offer our edition of this, which includes both alcohol and health boosters, so that line can get a little fuzzier (literally and figuratively). Some gin with your probiotics, ma’am?

Not-so-dirty Martini

Not to worry, this is still a dirty martini recipe, but with a flavourless twist to ensure your collagen stores hold up to all the alcohol you’re consuming.

Add ice into a mixing glass. Add 115mls of gin, 22mls ounce of dry vermouth and 1 sachet original  Vida Glow Original Marine Collagen into the glass and rapidly stir 50 times in a circular motion until the mixing glass is very cold. Once so cold it hurts, strain into a martini glass of choice and finish with 2/3 brined olives plus a generous splash of olive brine.

If you like Piña Coladas

A fruity, frosty beverage to transport you to anywhere else but here? Coming right up.

Freeze ½ of a fresh pineapple cut into pieces in a resealable plastic bag.

Pour into glasses. Garnish with tropical vibes.

Fruity Aperol Spritz

A spritz with a twist.

Pour 60mls Aperol, 88mls Prosecco, and 15mls The Beauty Chef Antioxidant Inner Beauty Boost into a rocks glass filled with ice. Top off with soda and gently stir. Garnish with orange or olives.

The Quarantine Cosmo

For re-watching of SATC and almost nothing else.
