A nutritionist with a lemonade recipe meant to ease those painful hangovers has posted a video on TikTok to share the unique concoction. Watch below to see how she makes it:
Monica D'Agostino created the 'Recovery Lemonade' to improve Sunday mornings after partying on weekends in hometown New York.
Her company Salt and Sage Nutrition offers health coaching about 'real food for your real life'.
Monica says: "I wanna show you what I do when I've had a long weekend and I want to get some nutrients to get something in my body to act like it never happened.
"I know a lot of dieticians on this app who like to pretend they're always eating vegetables and whatever.
"Nobody does that. It's not realistic. I go out with my friends every weekend because I live in New York, and I like to, and it's fun.
"So, you know what, live your life. Enough of this fake stuff on this app."
The first suggestion Monica offers is to buy a massive water bottle to contain an entire daily serving of H2O.
"I'm going to show you what I do to spice up this water and give yourself a little extra something, again to pretend like you didn't drink 10 tequila-sodas at a bar on Sunday for football," she says in the video with 3.5m views.
Monica first pours water from her dino-bottle into a mason jar with a straw in it (although I'm sure the mason jar and straw are optional.)
"The biggest reason you're going to feel better from this is hydration," she says. "I'm not going to b-s you, but I am adding some good stuff, so stay tuned."
She adds about three tablespoons of lemon juice, followed by two or three teaspoons of ginger paste.
"This is literally in a tube from the store. Is it gross? Fine," she says after adding the ginger. "Enough of shaming people into thinking that they need to do everything perfectly."
She then stirs the mixture of water, ginger, and lemon juice and adds some turmeric spice once finished.
"It's great. It sweetens it up," she says. "It has turmeric in it, so it's going to help with some of that inflammation from the weekend. Add that in, it makes it sweet."
Monica then strains out the ginger and adds a few cubes of ice to finish the whole thing off.
"Turmeric for inflammation, lemon juice to help your skin, drink it all to your stomach. Enjoy."
