Have your veggies, fruit, and drink your healthy 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!

Three healthy cocktail recipes made with fresh vegetable juice and fruit juice.

It’s amazing how sweet and delicious these drinks are using unique fruit and veggie combinations. We also added just a tad of sugar along the rim! Totally optional but we loved having a dash of sweetness.

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.

How to Make Fresh and Healthy Cocktails

You’ll need a juicer to juice vegetables and fruit for your cocktails.

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.

Healthiest Spirits

What is the healthiest cocktail?

If you’re ordering a cocktail at a bar or restaurants the healthiest cocktails to order are vodka soda, gin and tonic, Paloma, bloody mary or a martini.

If you’re making cocktails at home, our fresh vegetable and fruit cocktails are healthy as you’re getting a serving of fruit and vegetables with no added sugar. The only sugar in these drinks comes from the natural sugar in the fruits and vegetables as well as a small amount in the spirits.
