Clean Spring Cocktails

Maybe it’s because I just got back from Las Vegas, maybe it’s because today is the first day of SPRING…whatever the reason I have had “clean” cocktails on the brain.  By clean, I mean nothing from a bottle except for the booze.

Think: fresh squeezed green juice with celery, kale, apples, lemons, a little jalepeno mixed with a splash of vodka.  Or maybe freshly juiced grapefruit with a little tequila and a pink salt rim?  How about an earthy beet and blood orange juice with a bit of sparkling wine floating on top?  The possibilities are endless. Don’t want to juice or blend?  Buy cold pressed juice at the store and go to town.  I recommend Suja and Blue Print, personally. Save yourself the time and effort of juicing at home!

We all know fruit has a lot of sugar but here’s what I suggest: throw in some veggies, a splash of ACV, some soda water, minimize the amount of booze, and drink A TON OF WATER while imbibing…you are sure to have a fun night with a pretty forgiving morning. Just add a group of friends and PLEASE add some food as well. (Sidenote: I am notorious for not eating enough when wining with my girls, but I am making a big effort to change this!)  Hummus and pita, marinated olives, cheese with fermented pickles, and spiced nuts are my favorite “bar” snacks.

I recently found a solid recipe on A Healthy Life For Me for a Green Goddess Cocktail.  Um, hello?  It was like made for us, y’all.  With celery and cilantro among other goodies, this is one I plan to make ASAP. Find the whole recipe here.  Isn’t it gorg?  Photo by A Healthy Life For Me.
