(Guilt-Free) Summer Cocktails

So, you love a cheeky cocktail, but you're not so fond of the sugary teeth coating and the vicious head thumping the morning after? Welcome to the club, friend. Think of us as the Mr Miyagi of the low-sugar cocktail world. We're here to teach you to wax off the calories and wax on the guilt-free vibes. 

We've been through our fair share of cocktails, the fun, the fruity, the highly flammable and even the ones that come in a glass cowboy hat. We've also, as a result, chugged down our fair share of sugar. With sugar syrups, fruit liqueur and even toppings like fairy floss in the mix, those added sugars and cocktail calories really start adding up. 

So when you're next up to host group cocktail night, throw out the old-fashioned cocktail recipes and step away from the bright red syrup ­­­– we're here to show you a better way. 

Introducing our ‘Step-by-step guide on how to create fabulous cocktails – and better yet, save you 20 big ones’ (we're still workshopping the name).   

1. Pick your poison (just kidding- we love everything in moderation) 
Stick to clear or light spirits like Vodka and Gin as they tend to be the lowest in sugar and most calorie friendly.

2. Choose your mixer wisely 
It's time to break up with full-sugar lemonade, anything red and especially tonic (because while it looks harmless, this bad boy can have up to 2 tsp of sugar per 100ml). Remedy Sodaly on the other hand, contains none!

3. Add natural flavours and garnish
Use fresh herbs, freshly squeezed citrus juice or rind, or add in ripe fruit by the chunk (think berries, watermelon and mandarins or add some edible flowers to really spark joy).


Meet Your New Summer Flings

 

Guess what we've just dropped right in time for the silly season. Not one, but TWO new Limited Batch flaves exclusive to Woolies for you to sip and enjoy this summer.

In the greatest comeback since Kath & Kim announced their return to the screen, Remedy Kombucha Pavlova is BACK! Yup, after the success of this limited batch flave last year, we're bringing back our version of the quintessential Aussie summer dessert! Because what's summer without a good classic pav?!

Next up, we have a NEW brand spanker that could just be our best summer refresher yet - Remedy Kombucha Pink Grapefruit. Not only is this flave perfect for drinking by the pool, it also pairs perfectly with gin. Not that we've tested it.

You're going to want to be quick as these Limited Batch flaves are dropping into your local Woolies fridges this week and are only around for four weeks or until sold out. 


Let’s talk Energy Drinks (and why you should swap to Remedy K!CK)

We’ve all had a time in our lives when we guzzle caffeine like it’s going out of fashion. Maybe it’s because your newborn is screaming like the new cot is lava, the in-laws are (not so) subtly suggesting Christmas at yours or yup, it’s just another Monday morning.

We get it.

Life is hectic, but our brand-new energy drink, Remedy K!CK, is simple.
Remedy K!CK is the wiser energiser that goes hard on the caffeine (hello 80mg) but is slow on the release-  see ya jitters, sugar crashes and sugar highs. We're making energy drinks good again, and by good, we mean glorious, fruity and totally smashable. Because, well, we're firm believers that ‘fluoro green’ is not an actual flavour.

But just how have we done it?
It's all thanks to a tiny seed called the green coffee bean. No nasties. Nothing artificial. Just a smoother, more enduring energy hit that will have you ready to take on whatever life might throw at you. Did we also mention that Remedy K!CK contains the same caffeine as traditional energy drinks? C'mon, you know we'd never dream of depriving you of that sweet energy.

This is a drink you're not going to want to sleep on (literally), or maybe it's precisely the fix you're looking for to charge you into the night. Either way, we can't wait for you to try our brand-new caffeine hit in a can. Get ready to K!CK your goals (and get the much-needed edge when it comes to the inevitable Christmas ham wars).

 

Wondered how Remedy K!CK stacks up to your favourite energy drinks? We've got you.Wondered how Remedy K!CK stacks up to your favourite energy drinks? We've got you.

Remedy’s Ripper Summer Gift Guide

REMEDY GIFT GUIDE
The Christmas is creepin' up fast, and if you're one of those people who notoriously leaves gift buying to the last minute, dont fret. We got you covered with our ultimate Remedy gift guide. Whatever the occasion, whoever it's for, we've got the perfect gift ready to roll. 

FOR YOURSELF
This year we’re normalising buying presents for ourselves, and we’re taking the guilt out of energy drinks (double whammy!). How do they relate? Well, we’ve made Remedy K!CK, an all natural energy drink packed full of caffeine- designed to leave out the crashes and jitters, so you’re on your game when those 16 relatives flock in for the hols. We can’t think of a better expression of self-love than to give yourself a much-needed boost for the long Turkey stuffing tutorials (and the NYE hangover) with a couple of cases of Remedy K!CK. 

FOR YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER
Get bae into the Christmas spirit with a gift that will spice up their life- Remedy Ginger Lemon Kombucha (obviously). It’s fiery, tangy and oh-so-delicious. Fresh ginger adds warmth, while real lemon adds a citrus spark – this drink just feels like Christmas. They’ll be sippin’ on this classic (with a twist), wondering how they bagged such a good one. 

FOR YOUR MATE
So you’re in that weird in-between stage with a new friend where you’re not quite ready to hike Machu Picchu together, but you have committed to a regular Real Housewives viewing party?  We feel you. For the newcomer, surprise and delight with our Remedy Blood Orange Switchel ACV. This underdog of the Remedy fam is an excellent drop for a newbie dipping their toes into the world of fermented drinks (and their friendship with you).

FOR YOUR DAD
If It's the eighth year in a row you’ve found yourself casually perusing the hardware store website, slowly and carefully hovering your mouse over the ‘add to cart’, maybe it’s time to shake things up. We love getting on the tools, but c’mon, surely dad has enough Ryobi and Karcher in the garage by now. Do you know what we reckon we would froth? Remedy Sodaly. Our brand new all natural soft drink with no sugar! With a flavour profile that’ll take him back to his glory days of sippin’ on a cheeky lemon squash at the local watering hole. Don’t be surprised if the empties go straight to the pool room.

FOR YOUR MUM
Mums do a freakin’ lot (even when you don’t ask- hello undies stocking). So, this Chrissy, take a load off her plate and fill up ‘er cup (over and over again) with a delish Remedy subscription. It’s quite literally the gift that keeps on giving and one that’ll have you reclaiming your former angel-child glory. So, grab mum a weekly, fortnightly, or monthly Remedy delivery and really show how superior a child you are to your siblings.

FOR THE TEACHER
Ah, the one that puts up with your kid every day. A toughie, but we’ve got the fix. Quickly avert your eyes from the Facebook ads assuring you they want nothing more than a mug of 4B’s faces or some funky stationery. They don’t. What they do want is some fruity, smashable summer bevvies they can enjoy with their mates by the pool as they gear up for another year with smelly children. Help make this a reality and really show up all the other snooty parents with a Remedy Sodaly Mixed Case. You’ll get those brownie points for years to come.

FOR YOUR BOSS
What do you get the person that already has it all? A boatload of Remedy SHOTS, of course. Give your boss the gift of smugness – and trust us, they’ll be the smuggest of them all when they’re knocking back a digestion shot before tucking in at the work Christmas party and are bright-eyed and bushy-tailed with an immunity shot in hand the next day.  Trust us on this, they’re the only shots you can give to your boss that won't raise HR’s eyebrows. 

FOR THE FAMILY LUNCH
Forget the fruit cake (because, let’s be honest, nobody likes it anyway) and bring the fruitiest gift of them all, a Remedy Kombucha mixed case. Rest assured that, unlike the ‘rigged’ Christmas crackers and breakfast champagnes, this addition won’t end in tears. Our kombucha is vegan, gluten-free and contains no sugar, so you'll be prepared with artillery when aunty says “she’s trying to be good”. 

FOR YOUR BESTIE
Your bestie gives you ENERGY, so why not give ‘em some back? Remedy K!CK is the wiser energiser for your BFF. If you’re thinking, “my bestie is already crazy enough”, then rest assured K!CK won’t be driving them up the walls but instead give them an enduring energy hit to smash their goals. So, sit back, relax and watch your BFF rock around the Christmas tree with their newfound energy.
