Even that alcohol fattens! Here are the drinks to help you lose weight

A plant can be loved for many things. It adorns the garden, has delicate-scented flowers, produces delicious fruit, gives shade or just makes alcohol from any part of it.

The thing is, in addition to plums, apples, potatoes, and grains, there are a number of plants that make spirits, even if you wouldn’t think so. We have collected some of these.


Agave

Although blue agave is basically an essential ingredient in tequila, it is also an alcoholic beverage made from other types of this plant. Because when juices extracted from a plant start to ferment, a rather strange, but at the same time special drink is made, mezcal. This nectar was also favored by the Aztecs at the time and can still be found in some places today. Later, tequila became its successor, eventually gaining much greater popularity than its predecessor. Contrary to popular belief, the mezcal is the one in which the worms that live on the plant may be present in its glass, while the tequila can be included in the tequila, sometimes for the sake of tourists, which is sometimes not very mouth-watering for many.


Cherry flower

One of the important ingredients in Sakura liqueur from Japan is the flower of the cherry tree. The name itself, by the way, refers to one of the nation’s most important spring celebrations, symbolizing rebirth. In this case, a cocktail called “Cherry blossom” is usually consumed, into which the petal is also made from liqueur. It has a distinctly sweet taste, so you can feel less alcohol in it. This is why it is recommended to consume it in moderation.


Hibiscus

Very few people think that hibiscus, which boasts large flowers, is not only excellent as a tea, but can also be used to flavor liqueurs. Moreover, it is also one of the ingredients in tequila varieties in Mexico, which boasts a special red color and is really tasty. The plant, native to Asia, is rich in antioxidants, making it especially healthy even in the form of spirits.

Although maple syrup is popular, the vodka specialty made from sugar maple juice is little known. The drink, called Vermont Gold Vodka, is sweet, so ladies also enjoy it.

Aniseed

Although aniseed is not the main ingredient in the Turkish Raki drink, it is impossible to make grape distillate without it., which is very self-contained, has an alcohol content of 65%. Its unusual taste has a cooling effect even on the hottest summer days.


Azalea

In South Korea, azaleas are not a simple ornamental plant, as they are made into a very popular alcoholic beverage using a special process. From the meeting of rice and flower, the liqueur is made after two fermentations, which takes a total of a hundred days. Although the first procedure takes only seven days, the second takes seventy-five days. This was supplemented by a two-week maturation period. That is, although there is a lot to look forward to, it is certainly worth it.


Marula

This South African specialty has an alcohol content of only 17%. Marula is the fruit that, if it is fermented in the sun, it will certainly release some alcohol in it and even the animals that consume it will easily squeeze it out. The tree on which it grows can grow up to 18 meters in height, and both the flesh and seeds of the fruit can be consumed. It is therefore not a question of whether it is then used as a raw material for a spirit drink.

You can see how many different special plants there are that one would not even think of as an alcoholic beverage ingredient.
