The Master Cleanse Martini!

After a whole day and a half of fasting on the Master Cleanse, I have decided to break my fast. However, the Master Cleanse guidebook warns that you oughtn't end your fast too abruptly. So I came up with the Master Cleanse Martini!

It's pretty self explanatory, but I'll divulge the recipe anyway:

2 tbls fresh organic lemon juice
2 tbls organic grade-b maple syrup
1 oz cheap ass vodka
2 oz spring water
1/10 tsp organic cayenne pepper
chili pepper (for garnish--I don't have one)

1) Pour lemon juice, maple syrup, vodka, cayenne, water and ice into a martini shaker. Shake!
2) Pour into glassware of choice
3) Garnish with chili pepper
4) Get drunk and healthy all at the same time!*


"Master Cleanse-garita". Sub tequila for vodka. Sub lime juice for lemon juice. Garnish glasses with maple sugar or maple salt. Add a splash of triple-sec for good measure.

"Master Cleanse Sour". Sub whiskey for vodka. Add a splash of cherry syrup and garnish with a cherry.

"Long Island Iced Master Cleanse". Remove water, keep the vodka, and add: 1oz tequila, 1oz gin, 1oz triple sec, 1oz rum and a splash of angostura bitters. Garnish with lemon slice.

*Warning, may not be healthy at all. Do not attempt to follow the Master Cleanse Martini diet without first consulting with a physician.
