Yum! Nothing like a summer juice on a breezy day, and if it's an alcoholic day just add Vodka, I prefer Kettle One since it's the only vodka that doesn't bother me. You decide.
One day in Maui, I tried to make my own version of a drink I had at the juice bar Liquiteria in NYC. I added pineapple because it was on the table and mint because it was in my garden, and after my first sip, i said, "O' Mai Mai!". Add vodka for a bit of liquored tang!
3 apples, cored
6 mint sprigs, plus one more for garnish
2 cups pineapple
1 1/2 knob of ginger
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 oz. vodka (optional)
Dash cayenne pepper
Using a juice extractor, juice the apples, mint, pineapple, and ginger. Stir in lemon juice and vodka (if using). Top with cayenne and garnish with mint.
Makes 2 cups.
Total time: 10 minutes
Enjoy! xoxo Julie
