Festive Kale Margarita

INGREDIENTS

1 cup ginger juice (see note)

½ cup kale juice (see note)

2 oz. blanco tequila

1 oz. lime juice

¾ oz. agave nectar

Salt, for rimming the glass

DIRECTIONS

Rim a rocks glass with salt, set aside. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and pour in ½ oz. ginger-kale juice, tequila, lime juice and agave nectar. Shake well, and pour over ice into your salt-rimmed glass.

Note: Fresh ginger and kale juices are available for takeaway at some juice bars. To make kale juice at home, wash, stem, and roughly chop kale, and liquefy in a blender at high speed, straining out solids if desired. To make ginger juice at home, finely grate knobs of peeled ginger over cheesecloth; squeeze cheesecloth to strain out ginger juice.
