The extreme summertime heat often leaves us feeling irritable and dehydrated. Manhattan based spicy beverage company Prometheus Springs provides a solution with their all-natural, non-alcoholic elixirs that contain a blend of heat extracted from chili peppers, layered with a blend of refreshing gourmet drinks available for $2.49 in three flavors- Lemon Ginger, Lychee Wasabi and Pomegranite Black Pepper. It’s definitely got our taste buds curious. As soon as we try them, we’ll let you know if we got that quick picker up feeling.

For many, the very mention of hot and spicy seems to conjure an immediate association with flavors like salty and vinegary, but not for the owners of Prometheus Springs, a Manhattan based spicy beverage company. They
profess that spicy isn’t a flavor at all, but rather a sensation that can be captured and fused into a unique line of refreshing, thirst quenching organic beverages. Professing itself to be the worlds first and only “Capsaicin Spiced Elixir”, each bottle of Prometheus Springs in infused with a healthy dose of Capsaicin. They extract this naturally occurring phytochemical from chili peppers, which creates a spicy sensation but more over has an astounding array of health benefits.

The laundry list of Health benefits includes:

• Boosting metabolism
• Moderates appetites
• Protects your heart
• Anti- inflammatory
• Relieves congestion
• Detoxifies your body
• Enhances Mood

The mood enhancement is by virtue of capsaicin’s unique ability to stimulate the body’s endorphin response thus giving its drinkers a healthy natural high that can be compared to a runner’s high or even a post coital contentment. But for all the impressive health benefits that capsaicin boasts, it is important to remember that Prometheus Springs above all, is simply a delicious and surprisingly versatile beverage. With flavors like Lemon Ginger flavor, Lychee Wasabi, and Pomegranate Black Pepper the company has bars like New York’s Cooper Square Hotel already dressing up some rather curious cocktails.
