This cocktail is as healthy, natural and pure as you'll ever see. It also has the lowest calorie count possible from a cocktail.

It has been designed especially for those that enjoy a social drink but don't enjoy filling up on sugar, and also those who suffer from nasty hangovers the next day. 

Blueberries bring vitamin C and antioxidants known to metabolise toxins, Agave nectar, which is similar in taste to honey, is a totally natural sweetener with a much lower glycemic load than sugar. New Zealand's own Brokenshed vodka is the most natural and pure a distillate you will find anywhere in the world, and coconut water is renowned for its hangover treatment due to its high electrolytes and antioxidants.

So, next time you're entertaining at home give our low calorie, hangover preventing Blueberry & Coconut Elixir a try!
