Yup, it’s the first Friday after New Year’s Day and we’re going there with a green juice cocktail recipe and a mocktail, too. Healthy eating is on the mind, but we still love ending the week with a cocktail or mocktail (or two), so we’re bringing the two together. Because we’d like to think that the juice will offset our alcohol intake and, in the case of mocktails, our sugar intake, too.

And, yes, we’re sticking to that. Cheers!

Cocktail: Green Margarita

We’ll pretty much take anything mixed into Margartias, we love them so much. Still, this Green Margarita at Food Network (above) is far from a concession. The Super Green Juice used in this recipe is packed with plenty of citrus, apple, and cucumber, all of which have a fresh flavor perfect for making Margaritas. And then some dark leafy greens, too, for good measure—and to justify a second drink?


Mocktail: Minty Kale Limeade Mocktail
