Recipe: Going Green Mocktail

By UrbanRemedy

Going Green Mocktail

As luck would have it, San Francisco-based mixologist Jonny Cimone of Contempo Cocktails has created a disease-fighting green mocktail for us this St. Patrick’s Day. Jonny describes it as “refreshing, bright, vibrant, both mildly sweet and tart, with a smooth frothiness from the green tea and a taste similar to Cucumber Gimlet or Mojito.”

The Going Green mocktail is a healthy way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day – or a delicious way to recover from a more traditional night of St. Patrick’s indulgence. It contains antioxidant flavonoids from celery, parsley, and green tea to reduce inflammation and boost immunity. Spinach, cucumbers, and lemon hydrate and alkalize the body while delivering a powerful dose of enzymes and vitamins.
