Clearly, we love our juice around here. Whether it’s a Toxin Flush or a good ol’ Greenie, we’re all about a daily blast of plant-based nutrients. So when we were looking for a way to shake up our cocktails for fall, we of course opted to jazz ‘em up with juice!
When you use fresh juices as mixers instead of store-bought, processed juices or sodas, you’re skipping the refined sugar and preservatives, and fortifying your cocktail with an added shot of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
So now we’re taking the flavors of fall and juicing them for all they’re worth.
