The summer heat springs forth all kinds of cravings — especially for delicious cocktails. It’s important to stay refreshed, and my favorite way to do so is with from fresh fruits and vegetables. I don't need fake sugars or preservatives, and I wouldn't want to serve them to my guests, either. Instead, I prefer to create my cocktails with fresh cold-pressed juice.
When I don't have the time to freshly squeeze produce myself, I turn to cold-pressed juices from my favorite, Pure Green, the most convenient farm-to-table and preservative-free option. You can find most of these juices in the cold-pressed aisle:
Bailey's: Blend the Bailey's with ice and cashew milk to turn it into a smoothie. Make it a dessert by adding a couple scoops of ice cream or frozen yogurt to the blender.
Vodka: This needs pure watermelon juice and a mini umbrella for garnish.
These combinations are more than just tasty — they’re great vitamin boosters. You’ll feel better as you sip, and you’ll wake up without a hangover. They’re a great way to get your daily dosage of vitamins and nutrients from fruits and vegetables. Besides eating them, the cold-press option is the closest thing you're going to get to raw, pure vegetables and fruits.
