Sometimes it takes a spoonful of sugar to make the medicine go down.  That’s why our Whole Body Mixologists are selecting one of our favorite supplements each month and shaking them up in a signature cocktail.  We will be testing out these naughty and nourishing libations on weekends and select evenings throughout the summer.  Ask a Whole Body team member for a recipe card!
