FreshJuiceCocktails_1FreshJuiceCocktails_3FreshJuiceCocktails_6FreshJuiceCocktails_4FreshJuiceCocktails_2FreshJuiceCocktails_5 Have your veggies (and fruit!) and drink your cocktail too with these 3 deliciously fresh juice cocktail recipes! We’re keeping these juice cocktails easy and healthy with zero added sugar – it’s just the fresh juice from the fruit and a spirit! Okay, maybe we added just a tad of sugar along the rim! It’s amazing how sweet and delicious these drinks are using unique fruit and veggie combinations. The green juice is super spicy, which I LOVE, and has tequila in it. The pineapple blend has a good chunk of ginger in it, some lemon juice and we added some rum to it for a more tropical taste! And the strawberry juice combo is absolutely delicious with apples, pears and limes and we added gin for this one. We used our KitchenAid juicer for perfect juices, but these can easily be cold pressed juices if you have a cold press juice machine and  prefer that method better. Cheers to these sweet and summery juice cocktails!!

Spicy Green Juice
6 green apples
2 cucumbers
1 cube of ginger
2 celery sticks
1/4 slice of a jalapeño (take the seeds out)

Follow the juicers guide to juicing. To make the cocktail, add 3/4 cup fresh juice with 1 ounce tequila in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake for 20 seconds and then strain over a large ice cube. Cheers!

Pineapple, Lemon + Ginger Bliss

2 cubes fresh ginger, peeled
juice of 1 lemon

Follow the juicers guide to juicing. To make the cocktail, add 3/4 cup fresh juice with 1 ounce rum in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake for 20 seconds and then strain over a large ice cube. Cheers! We also added a little cinnamon and sugar around the rim of the glass.

3 pears
12 strawberries
Juice of 1 lime

Follow the juicers guide to juicing. To make the cocktail, add 3/4 cup fresh juice with 1 ounce gin in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake for 20 seconds and then strain over a large ice cube. Cheers!
