Monday Munchies: SWEET AND ZINGY MOCKTAIL

The Ranch at Live Oak Malibu, a detox spa and fitness resort, created this sparkling green mocktail recipe. Melon and apple add a natural sweetness, celery and ginger add edge and spiciness, and sparkling water gives the beverage a little fizz. Whether you’re looking to detox or to replace your 5 p.m. cocktail, here’s a simply satisfying mocktail recipe to get you started.

We used honeydew melon in place of the cantaloupe, which gives the juice a superbright green color.

Ingredients

  • 1 whole cantaloupe (or honeydew melon)
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1 apple
  • 1/4-inch piece of ginger
  • 1 750ml bottle of sparkling water
  • Salt to taste

For the garnish:
4 citrus slices (optional)

Directions
Put all ingredients except sparkling water and salt through a fruit and vegetable juicer. Mix the juice with the sparkling water; serve over ice. Garnish with a citrus slice (optional) and toast away!

Serves four.
