If you haven’t experienced the serene oasis that is Buckhead’s {SAMA} Food for Balance, we feel very confident their latest menu additions will have you seriously contemplating what has taken you so long. Their Ayurvedic driven menu offers flavor-packed balance bowls, colorful brekkie bowls, and fresh, bright juices, all consciously created to benefit mind, body and soul.

And now {SAMA} is taking their balancing act to the next level with clean, organic cold-pressed cocktails and biodynamic wines. Now, that’s a tune we can brunch to!

WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS...

Obviously, you make a Gin Gin Lemonade with fresh-pressed lemons and ginger root, organic gin, and the perfect amount of maple syrup, pour it over ice, and finish it with a fragrant basil leaf. At least that’s what Shannon Sliger, the beautiful mind behind {SAMA} Food for Balance, decided to do. And good news for us, the well-balanced cocktail creations didn’t stop there.

Shannon brought {SAMA} to life with balance and mindfulness as the center focus. She wanted to provide Atlanta residents with a zen destination they could retreat to in the middle of their chaotic schedules and take a moment for themselves. Her unique concept manifested into a beautiful, welcoming space that offers various meditation classes alongside food that truly fuels mind and body, and grants your soul to feel at peace. In her quest to provide balance in all aspects of life, developing organic, clean cocktails seemed like a natural progression and a challenge to prove mixed drinks don’t always have to be unhealthy.

THE MOST WHOLESOME OF BOOZY BRUNCHES

The weekend means brunch for most and {SAMA}’s cocktail brunches, which began mid-May 2019, are positively healing. For instance, perfectly paired with {SAMA}’s breakfast tacos is their Cool Aid Margarita, which begins with their well-known Cool Aid juice: fresh watermelon, lime, freshly scraped aloe vera, and Shatavari root. Delightfully mixed together with organic tequila, poured over ice, and garnished with lime and a melon ball in a coconut sugar- and Himalayan pink sea salt-rimmed glass.

And if you are ready to take on your day feeling refreshed and radiant, we recommend piling up on colorful and fresh veggies from their new raw bar and sipping on a Beauty Bellini, a perfect balance of light, effervescent Prosecco and {SAMA}’s Ojas juice.

In addition to their gluten-free and organic cocktails, {SAMA} also offers a selection of sustainable and biodynamic wines, basically making your next boozy brunch guilt-free! If this is what it takes to establish a little more balance in our lives, we are 100% on board. Cheers!
