From beets to kale, cucumbers to Thai basil, try one of these spring inspired drinks from NYC’s finest bars!
Rainbow-hued cocktails may taste great, but they rarely get their coloring from nature. What holiday is better known for dying everything-from rivers to beer-than St. Patrick’s Day! This year, Soltado Tequila challenged some of New York City’s best bartenders to create something new: St. Patrick’s and spring-themed drinks that are not only fresh and tasty, but contain one or more ingredients in the that are actually good for the body.
As luck would have it, being (and drinking!) ‘green’ is easier than you think. From hydrating cucumber, to berries, fresh beets, and even muddled kale, one sip of these beauties, and you’ll never go back to colored mixers (or green beer) again.
Containing fresh pressed apple and celery juice, jalapeno infused honey, and fresh, sweet candy cane beets, this green cocktail makes for the perfect detox-retox therapy. Rosemary and thyme adds an extra layer of earthy green flavor.
