A dose of cardamom in your next libation will add healing powers to your cocktail. From the pantry of the Apothecary’s den to your mixing glass, cardamom is just what the doctor ordered.
Health Benefits of Cardamom:
❖ Relieves stomach cramps.
❖ Enhances appetite and provides relief from acidity in the stomach.
❖ Detoxifies the body of excessive amounts of caffeine.
❖ High in calcium, iron, manganese, copper, magnesium, and zinc.
❖ Cures halitosis (bad breath).
❖ Rekindles your inner fire. Cardamom is a warming spice that comforts the body when it’s cold; for this reason, it is a fantastic spice for people who have poor circulation or for people who live in climates with cold winters.
If Medicinal Mixology were a religion, then the cocktail would be our Holy Water. If the Alchemist could turn a stone into the Elixir of Life, then herbs and spices would be our gateway to eternal youth. Now we all know many explorers have lost their lives in search of the Fountain of Youth without ever finding such a wonder, but Medicinal Mixology believes that the earth has already given us what we need to remain healthy — herbs, roots, spices, fruits, and so on. As a Medicinal Mixologist, you must be part-Apothecary and part-Alchemist by carefully selecting botanicals and then using a variety of elements to mix a tasty, healthy cocktail. By adding cardamom to a libation, you will create a medicinal cocktail with curative powers that can remedy a variety of ailments. Drink to good health!
