When it comes to cocktails, I like mine clean and green…
I like to laugh at the fact that my very first alcoholic drink ever was, wait for it, a strawberry daiquiri. Yep. Would I have one now? Probably not. As I got into my late 20s (and now early 30s) I realized how important it is to drink “clean” cocktails because one, they’re healthier and have less calories and two, because too much sugar just isn’t good for you.
I created this clean and healthy-ish cocktail and deemed it “The Quarter Life Crisis” in homage to my former blog name, and the time period in my life when I first realized good cocktails don’t have to be loaded down with sugar and all kinds of fake ingredients.
The Quarter Life Crisis
- 2 oz. Pinnacle® Peach Vodka
- 5 oz. simple syrup
- Blueberries (as many as you want)
- 2 oz. club soda
- ¾ ounce kale juice
- ½ ounce fresh lemon juice
Pinnacle® Peach Vodka was a really nice addition to the kale, which can sometimes be a little bitter, because it adds just the right amount of sweetness…without any kind of overload. I was pleasantly surprised how light and refreshing the flavor actually tastes, especially when mixed in with my other ingredients, and will definitely be trying out Pinnacle’s other flavors (hello, whipped cream!)
What do you guys think? Will you try out The Quarter Life Crisis?!
