Green Juice Cocktail

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!
