A Frozen Aperol Spritz Cocktail Is The Drink Of The Summer (Now With Collagen!)
grass-fed collagen+ (unflavored)
The one-step beauty routine for youthful skin, healthy hair & strong nails.*
In her healthy recipe, you'll still get those unique, sweet-bitter notes from oranges and rhubarb, with no added sugar. Plus, this version features collagen, which throws some beauty benefits to the mix: "Collagen powder might be beneficial for skin, hair, and nail health, and it might help support muscle mass as well as manage joint pain," Davis explains. In fact, clinical studies have shown that collagen supplements are able to promote collagen and elastin production, as well as maintain healthy moisture levels and smoothing fine lines.* Quite the upgrade to your summer sip.
And because it's frozen, this icy spritz is ultra-refreshing on a scorching summer day. Of course, if you'd rather a cocktail on the rocks, this recipe is incredibly easy to remodel: Simply skip the blender and stir all the ingredients in a pitcher for a classic cocktail.
