For someone who hardly ever drinks strong alcohol, I have a good number of spirits at home. The vodka that I once bought for making aroma sprays, the sherry that was intended for a specific recipe, the tequila from the last summer party where everyone only drank white wine and beer, the Hierbas de Mallorca, that tastes wonderful in the restaurant and who ekes out a forgotten existence at home …
This body scrub uses only a small amount of alcohol, which in this case has an astringent and anti-inflammatory effect. With this you won’t get rid of your orphaned supplies in one fell swoop, but if there is an old bottle of tequila or vodka in your fridge, you can now make a refreshing, summery scrub out of it. Simply mix with salt and lime juice and get a summery margarita cocktail for the whole body, that will make you feel refreshed, but definitely not drunk.
