Don’t get us wrong, we love a party at DOSE, but as we’ve got older, the hangovers are definitely getting worse and the negatives of drinking have started to outweigh the benefits. As for the hangxiety after having a few too many, well, it’s simply not worth it. So rather than downing shots of sambuca, tequila or jäger bombs (does anyone even drink those anymore?), to celebrate freedom day, line up the turmeric and ginger for a healthier kind of hedonism. Your body will thank you later, not to mention the brighter complexion, heightened energy levels and boosted immune system. Here are our favourite juice shots for a gulp full of goodness…
