Post 48: The Merry Maker, A Scurvy Cure for the Common Sailor


Wednesday was the official end of a 21 day cleanse for JD and me, so we decided to celebrate with a Scurvy Cure for the Common Sailor.  And what better way to celebrate than with a champagne cocktail, a spectacular sunset, a full moon, a couple of good friends and plenty of Vitamin C?

The Merry Maker

Recommended Ingredient List

The Ingredient List (Serves 4 Sailors 2 drinks each):

  • 2 Bottles of Champagne (I went with a Brut as I didn’t want it to be overly sweet)
  • Grapefruit Juice (Contains 90% of recommended Vitamin C daily intake!!)
  • Limeade
  • Organic Strawberries

The Particulars:

  • Pour 1 entire bottle of champagne into 4 glasses
  • 2 second pour of grapefruit juice
  • 1 second pour of limeade
  • Hand squeeze 1 juicy strawberry into drink and then drop the remainder of the berry into the glass
  • Watch sunset
  • Drink and repeat

Fresh Squeezed Strawberry- YUM.

Refreshing and tasty on a warm San Francisco evening with enough Vitamin C to stop Scurvy in its tracks.  A special thanks to Raine and Anne for their willingness to experiment with grapefruit juice.
