Lion’s Mane Extract for a Medicinal Cocktail

Like life in general, a good drink should be well rounded and balanced. Adding a few droppers of Lion’s Mane mushroom extract is a great way to add a little more complexity to a beverage, while reaping a whole host of benefits in the process. Enjoy drinking cocktails even more knowing you are supporting your nervous system and brain function alongside the not so supportive alcohol. Try pairing a drink with one of these tasty Lion’s Mane recipes!

Mane-Hattan 

The addition of Lion’s Mane mushroom extract adds subtle depth to the classic Manhattan. Try substituting Japanese or French whiskey instead of rye for another twist.

  • 2 oz rye whiskey
  • 1 oz sweet vermouth
  • 3 droppers Lion’s Mane tincture
  • Dash Angostura bitters
  • Orange peel, for garnish
  • Maraschino cherry, optional

Rub the orange peel around the rim of a glass to release some of the oils. Place the peel and cherry in the glass. In a cocktail shaker, combine whiskey, vermouth, tincture, and bitters with ice. Stir until chilled, then strain into the glass.

Foamy Lion

Shaking raw egg whites in a cocktail adds body and leaves a nice creamy head on the drink. To maximize safety, use a fresh egg from a happy chicken, make sure you have clean hands, and clean the egg before cracking. The Foamy Lion tastes much richer than it really is!

  •  2oz vodka
  • ½ oz amaretto
  • ¼ oz maple syrup
  • 3 droppers Lion’s Mane tincture
  • Squeeze of lime juice
  • 1 egg white
  • Nutmeg, to garnish

Combine all of the ingredients, except nutmeg, in a cocktail shaker. Cap it dry, without ice, and shake for about twenty seconds to foam up the egg. Open it up, add some ice, and shake vigorously for another twenty seconds. Strain into a coupe glass. Grate nutmeg over the top.
