You smell like dumpster and your mouth tastes like the carpet at a strip club. You look down at your arm and notice 5 stamps. Fuck. You get up to wash your face and when you get to the bathroom you notice the 3 stamps on your forehead. Your immediate reaction is to make sure you are wearing pants… you’re not. In fact, you have somehow managed to keep your shoes on as you removed your pants AND underwear at some point early this morning…

YOU NEED A DRINK.. STAT … Let me introduce to you the GREEN MIMOSA

1 part green juice ( Spinach, cucumber, apple, kale, lemon, ginger is my favorite)

1 part Organic Raw Kombucha

Mix in a glass and enjoy.

Kombucha is an all natural health beverage full of probiotics and other healthy amino acids. Probiotics are said to boost immunity, enhance mood, regulate pH, and detoxify the body. Quadruple win!

***DO NOT SHAKE YOUR KOMBUCHA. You will end up wearing it.


The Edgy Veg: Acai Basil Cocktail


Basil Tequila Cocktail

 

Patios, parks, or before a yoga class… My vice happens to be anything in a bottle alongside some early 90s punk rock. For the most part, I like to keep things classy…But because it’s almost impossible to stop yourself from doing the pogo and making less than flattering facial expressions while actively singing along to your favorite lyrics, you must ensure that at least one part of this liquid fueled mess has some level of style.
You can act like a total lunatic, but if you are holding a fancy schmancy drink in your hand people assume you’re a well educated individual letting loose after a long day, not a nut job stuck in 1995 that re-lives the glory days every evening in your backyard… I meannnn…..Let’s face it you aren’t doing yourself any favours staying up until 4am every Saturday night…

The great thing about this drink is that you can make a bunch and keep it in your fridge for a super long time! Like I always say, be prepared.

2 parts Acai berry juice

1 part fresh lime juice

1 part agave nectar

2 parts club soda

Tequila

1 package basil, roughly chopped

Cucumbers and lemons, sliced for garnish

Take a glass jar a fill it with tequila, now you’re going to want to insert a straw and sip… juuuuust kidding….. Add a handful of basil and muddle it, let that sit in your fridge anywhere from 1-4 days depending on your patience and desired basil flavour. Combine 1 part lime juice, 1 part agave, and your desired amount of basil infused tequila in a shaker… I like doubles…

Shake the crap out of that… and add it to your glass… top with half acai and half soda water, garnish with cucumber and lime. There you have it, so let’s raise a glass to appearing like you’ve got your shit together… Salud!
