The Power Collins (Green Juice Cooler with Gin & Agave Nectar)
I had completely wiped that memory away until yesterday, when I topped a glass of ice and freshly pressed green juice (spinach, fennel, apple, parsley, lemon) with some club soda for a refreshing "cooler" type of drink. As I sipped it from a metal straw, the electric green hue automatically reminded me of this Ecto Cooler Hi-C.
Except this version was sugar-free and packed with veggies, fruits, and herbs, and I'd gladly serve it to children. It tastes citrusy, bright, and slightly sour and has the carbonation from the club soda, so it's the perfect thing to cure a soda addiction or add a nice twist to your glass of juice.
We managed to polish off a pitcher of green juice this way (we typically do shots of it throughout the day whenever we make a batch of juice). But after a day or two, we tend to forget about the rest of the juice and it goes to waste.
The Green Juice Cooler prevented that from happening. The stats:
Per half cup serving:
Vitamin A 85%
Vitamin C 166%
I'll be serving my green juice "Power Collins" at On the Veg Night at Tu Belleza Studio during First Friday. So don't forget to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
