Ingredients
  • Lime wedge, for rim of glass, plus lime slice, for garnish
  • Coarse salt, for rim of glass
  • 2 ounces Super Green Juice, recipe follows
  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 1 ounce orange liqueur, such as Cointreau
  • Super Green Juice:
  • 1 to 2 large, juicy lemons, peel and pith removed
  • 1 medium Granny Smith apple, peeled and cored
  • 2 romaine leaves
  • 1/2 large cucumber
  • 1 cup loosely packed hearty greens, such as spinach or kale
Directions
  • Moisten the rim of a margarita glass with a wedge of lime, and then roll the glass at an angle in the salt so that only the outside of the glass is salted.

  • Combine the Super Green Juice, tequila and orange liqueur in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously for 8 to 10 seconds. Strain into the prepared glass over ice. Garnish with a slice of lime.

Super Green Juice:
  • Juice, in this order, the lemons, apple, romaine, cucumber and greens, following your juicer's specific settings for each. Serve the juice immediately over ice, if desired. Yield: 8 to 10 ounces
