The Golden Fleece is Source Coffee’s take on a turmeric latte. Creamy oat milk mixed with spicy turmeric, a dash of sweetness from house-made vanilla syrup, a sprinkle of fresh cracked pepper, and crystallized ginger. It’s an anti-inflammatory elixir that’s as delicious as it is healthy, and perfect for warming up in the cold winter months ahead. 


4. OMG, give us a Bloody Mary Cheney, please! @ Bistro on Main – Manchester

Bloody Mary mix, basil & cucumber, duck bacon, pickles, olives & lemon + a smoked paprika sea salt rim. Mic drop. The Bloody Mary Cheney named after an important historical figure in Manchester is one of 3 mocktails Bistro on Main offers. “Because non-alcohol consumers enjoy fun and creative drinks too!”


5. Fill your water bottle with a fruit-infused water recipe @ First Bite Catering

Liven up your water bottle with sliced cucumbers, lemons, and strawberries. We got this idea from First Bite Catering who always presents water with swagger at their catered events. You know you’ll be more likely to reach your 2 liters a day goal drinking it this way!


6. Visit CT’s first Kombucha tap room @ Cross Culture Kombucha – Danbury

Delish and good for you!

Satisfy your sweet tooth with an all-natural, no sugar added, smoothie, juice, or shake at Boost Bowls. We’re especially loving the Pink Dragon, Aloha, Green Machine, and Blue Majik, which also happen to be very Instagrammable! For the extra sober curious, check out their juice cleanse program.
