Superfood Cocktails

Kale Martini
by Celiac Chicks

Ingredients:
2 cups spinach
2 cups cucumber
1 head of celery
½ inch or tsp ginger root
1 bunch parsley
2 apples
Juice of 1 lime
Juice of ½ lemon
2.5 oz vodka
2 cups of kale

Directions:
Combine all ingredients in a blender.

Blueberry Margaritas
by Gimme Some Oven

Ingredients:
1 pint (2 cups) fresh blueberries
3 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
5 oz blanco/silver tequila
2 oz Grand Marnier or Cointreau (or any orange liqueur)
Ice
Optional: Lime wedge and salt for rimming the glass

Directions:
Add the blueberries and lime juice together in a blender, and pulse until smooth. (Or alternately, you can muddle the blueberries and lime juice together in a jar until pureed.) Strain out the juice through a fine-mesh strainer into a cocktail shaker, discarding the berry pulp. Add the tequila and Cointreau to the cocktail shaker and stir to combine. If you would like salt-rimmed glasses, begin by running a lime wedge (the juicy part) around the top rims of your glasses. Fill a shallow bowl with salt and dip the rims in the salt until they are covered with your desired amount of salt. (Or you can skip this step and use regular glasses that are not salt-rimmed.) Fill the glasses with ice, then pour in the blueberry margarita mixture. Serve immediately.

Matcha Ginger Kombucha Fizz
by How Sweet Eats

Ingredients:
2 oz vodka
2 tsp honey
¼ tsp matcha powder
8 oz ginger kombucha
1 lime, cut into wedges
A handful of fresh mint for garnish

Directions:
Add the vodka, honey and matcha powder into a cocktail shaker. Shake for at least 30 seconds – until the matcha is dissolved. I like to add ice then shake for 20 seconds more. Fill two chilled glasses with ice and pour the matcha vodka over. Squeeze in the juice from a lime wedge. Fill the rest of the cup with ginger kombucha and garnish with a few fresh mint leaves. Serve immediately!
