Easy, Healthy Tropical Cocktail Recipe

Happy Hour: The Brazilian

Ever since I caught sight of the Obamas' holiday digs in Hawaii, I've been desperately missing the tropics, and all the sun, surf, and superb eats that go along with it.

So over the weekend, while the West Coast enjoyed record highs, I sat back in some new shades, ate up the 70-degree weather, and guzzled a good-for-you cocktail that felt like a mini island vacation.

I can't take credit for the idea (that goes to New York's Rouge Tomate), but this brilliant drink is one part healthy smoothie, one part fizzy spa cocktail, and all parts equatorial. Want to enjoy a glass, too? Then read more.
