 If you’re wondering what I’ll be doing this Friday night, the answer is I’m going to be healthy and DRINK my salad. Yes, you heard it right, I said drink and not eat. And I don’t mean in a boring smoothie sort of way. 

The most trending and Friday-eque way to enjoy your salad these days is in a cocktail.

Healthy and fun, that’s what this new concoction is all about! Could millennials ask for a better invention? 

I speak for an entire generation when I say that these salad cocktails are the best thing that happened to us. I mean, now, we can have our salad and enjoy it too. Ka-ching! 

So, the next time you invite your gym-going/yoga-loving friends over, add these salad cocktails to the menu and watch them be a total hit. 

Gin & Green Juice
Drinking your veggies couldn’t get any more fun than this. Just add some gin to your green juice and watch all your friends make the healthy choice.   
50ml Tanqueray No.10 Gin 
90ml Fresh Green Veggie Juice 
Mint, for garnish
