🧄 Garlic and Vodka?


Nope, we didn’t just put a random subject headliner to click bait you!


We are talking real Smilo Vodka cocktails with Garlic in them.


Why Garlic?


From time immemorial garlic has been known for its remarkable qualities both as a flavouring and a unique natural medication.


Garlic is a wonderful prophylactic against many diseases, flu first and foremost. The healing qualities of the vegetable were a mystery for ancient doctors. The secret was unveiled by Dr. David Mirelman from the Jerusalem-based Institute for Medicine. The scientist found out that garlic was rich with allicin – the substance that literally eats up pathogenic microbes in the body. Garlic neutralizes so-called free molecules, the source of long-lasting infectious processes. In addition, it fights dysentery and bile duct illnesses.


So without further delay, here are our top 3 Garlic and Vodka cocktail mixes that will keep the vampires away and has the health benefits to go along side of it.
