I start almost every morning with this nutrient-rich recipe for green detox juice, so why not end my week with a sauced-up version? Since tequila pairs nicely with other green goodness like cucumber, cilantro, and jalapeno, it seems the fitting spirit to mix with fresh-pressed kale and ginger juice. The kale gives the drink a clean and subtle vegetal taste, but the ginger and agave syrup balance it out with a sweet and spicy kick.

1.5 ounces 100-percent agave blanco tequila
1.5 ounces fresh-pressed kale-ginger juice
1 ounce fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon agave syrup
Candied ginger, for garnish
To make this cocktail, you'll need a juicer. If you don't have a juicer, pick up fresh kale and ginger juice at a natural foods market or juice bar. To make the kale-ginger juice, use a 3-inch piece of ginger to one kale bunch.
- Shake all ingredients with ice, then strain over fresh ice into a rocks glass. Garnish with candied ginger.
