Rosemary And Grapefruit Chia Tonic Recipe

In his latest cookbook, Real Food Heals, NYC chef Seamus Mullen writes about his love for tonics—and, no, not the kind you're dousing with a three-second pour of gin. He's referring to concoctions that are packed with healthful properties, like this rosemary-grapefruit number that'll have you feeling your best, thanks to the immune system support compounds rosemary is said to have.
