healthier cocktails made with your juicer

I try to get my fruits and veg in where I can.  I just thought using my juicer to make a cocktail would be fun to try and actually it was very tasty.  It reminded me of a light cosmopolitan.  Of course, this would be delicious with or without alcohol.

Ingredients:
1 granny smith apple
1 pear
1 half inch slice of raw beet.
2 ounces of vodka (optional)
Juice the apple, pear and beet.  Pour into a martini shaker full of ice and shake (a lot - the colder the better!!)  Strain and serve in a martini glass. This is enough to make 2 martinis.

The beet juice is for its beautiful color. 

If you didn't have a pear on hand, this would be just as good with 2 granny smith apples instead

Cheers!

  2. Hi, this was delicious! Only added juiced lemon, gave it just the perfect acid bright flavor we love. Thanks, it's a keeper!
