I had the best green juice cocktail at a fun restaurant here in Nulu. I decided to create my own recipe for a fun spring refresher. I like to make my own green juice. I use spinach, celery, cucumber, oranges, pineapple, and apples. I added some vodka, local honey, and fresh lime juice. The result was light and refreshing. Coincidentally, this is the perfect festive cocktail for St. Patrick’s Day too!

1 Granny Smith apple, quartered and cored
1 cup of pineapple, cubed

Press them through the juicer.

Use a mandoline to slice the cucumber into long thin slices.
Fill your glasses with nugget ice.
Arrange the cucumber slices diagonally in the glasses.
