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


  1. 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.
  2. 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:

  1. 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.
