Green Cocktail

Sometimes things just come together. I started this cocktail with some bright green cucumber juice and decided to pair it with everything else green.

And it worked.

The colour is stunning, the taste is balanced and fresh. If you could ever feel healthy drinking a cocktail, this would be the one.

A natural and much more delicious alternative to green beer this St. Patty’s Day!

Looking for more St. Patty's Day inspiration?
