Description Description

Restore your body, mind, and spirit with these delicious, easy-to-make recipes for non-alcoholic drinks featuring some of nature’s most powerful, stress-busting, health-supporting plants: adaptogens.
It’s no secret that modern life is not great for our health. Stress and sickness are on the rise and traditional Western medicine, with its overreliance on pills, drugs, and chemically derived substances, doesn’t always help. Still less does alcohol and other supposed “coping” mechanisms. It’s no wonder people are turning to adaptogens instead: herbs, roots, fungi, and other plants that have been used for centuries in traditional and ancestral medicine to help people adapt to stress and increase wellness. While it’s common to consume these potent plants as supplements, a better way—more sustainable and enjoyable way—is to incorporate them into your daily, monthly, and yearly diet. In Drink Up & Glow, master beverage creator Gaby Mylnarczyk will show you how to do just that and reap the astonishing benefits of these powerful plants.
In this fully photographed and illustrated book, Gaby pulls from her years of experience working behind bars and in kitchens—not to mention coping with her own health challenges—to create 75 adaptogenic recipes for drinks, tonics, shots, smoothies, shakes, mocktails, and more. Organized seasonally and rooted in Gaby’s point of view as a craft beverage maker, these recipes feature fresh produce, include zero alcohol, and incorporate the most popular and well-researched adaptogens of the day: ashwagandha, goji berries, holy basil, turmeric, rhodiola, lion’s mane, chaga, ginseng, and more.

From enlivening morning shakes and lattes to caffeine-free afternoon energy shots to soothing nightcaps and tisanes, these drinks are designed to flow with the natural rhythm of the day and help support a variety of health outcomes, including stress relief, immunity assistance, and improved mood, digestion, and sleep. A delightful collection of drinks that are both functional and delicious, the recipes include:

  • Goji Berry Rhubarb Sour
  • The Maca Fauxito
  • Holy Basil Cucumber Lemonade
  • Dirty Chaga Chai
  • Relaxing Reishi Tisane
  • Rising Sun Shake
  • “Mind Embracer” Lion’s Mane Mule
  • Mango Maca Lassi
  • Gotu Kola Spritz
  • Sangresandra “Margarita”
  • Holy Rhodiola Smoothie Bowl
  • Rosy Glow Horchata with Shitake & Velvet Bean
  • And more!

Each chapter also includes a few recipes for gatherings and celebrations, for those times when you need to provide drinks for a crowd. Fun, colorful, and approachable, Drink Up & Glow is the perfect book for holistic health enthusiasts, beverage lovers, and people looking to stress less and live more.

Whether you’re in need of a cozy, warming beverage to soothe frazzled nerves, a cognitive pick-me-up to help with the 3 p.m. slump, or a tasty and relaxing refresher to celebrate the end of the day, Drink Up and Glow will have you drinking to your health.
