A Delicious “Alcohol Alternative” Recipe That Gives You The “Feel-good” Buzz Of Alcohol
Feeling a bit less-than-stellar after your New Year's alcohol intake? Or a few too many Christmas cocktails? Here's my latest alcohol alternative invention that I drank over New Year's evening…and it's pretty tasty too.
To get all the feel-good buzz of alcohol without actually drinking alcohol, while actually DECREASING not INCREASING inflammation (due to the ketone content), simply combine:
- 1 bottle of KetoneAid liquid ketones (FYI the salt/ester combo is not only less expensive, but tastes BETTER than the pure ester version). You can use code BEN for free shipping.
- 1 shot of Kin Euphorics, which is a mixture of nootropics, adaptogens, and botanicals designed to give you similar effects as alcohol, without the toxins.
- Optional, but recommended: Top with sparkling water like Pellegrino or Gerolsteiner, and then add a pinch of a good salt.
So there you have it! What should we call this new drink? Kintones? Kintosis? Kintonic? Leave any of your ideas in the comments section below, and *also* let me know your favorite “non-alcohol” cocktail alternatives.

News Outlet I Was Featured On This Week:
::: Huge Savings On The Artificial Intelligence Bike Now In My Office :::
CAR.O.L is the first cloud-connected exercise system to compress a 45-minute workout into 2x 20-second sprints. Yes, you read that correctly, and there's science to back it up, which I'll gladly sum up for you…
Extremely brief spurts (10-20 seconds) performed during a quick 10-minute-a-day workout achieved more superior health and cardiovascular benefits than a long, boring, steady-state workout.
Standing for Cardiovascular Optimization Logic, CAR.O.L is an AI-powered, interactive bike with self-learning algorithms. “She” automates each HIIT workout and guides you through touchscreen and audio prompts. This thing is clinically proven to give you the same cardio benefits of a 45-minute jog in under 9 minutes, with only 40 seconds of hard work. It has built-in AI algorithms that personalize your resistance to guarantee you hit max power every session in order to deplete your glycogen stores as fast as possible.
- $350 discount…
- $156 towards a 1-year Peloton Digital subscription…
- Free 1-year CAR.O.L subscription, and…
- A free chest belt!
It's incredibly convenient, especially for the office—you can just get on and get off during one of your “Pomodoro” breaks.
