Kale Ginger Margarita Recipe

Happy Hour in the Garden: Kale-Ginger Margarita

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.

Ready to healthify your happy hour? Read on for the kale-ginger margarita recipe.
