Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Forgot to wear a green shirt? Why not try a new way to go green on St. Patrick’s Day this year! Here is a list of my favorite gluten-free green drinks that you could enjoy today, or, really, any day!
1. Kale and associates from Blueprint Juice
Readily available at most Whole Foods Stores, this juice is sweet, tart and has the perfect level of spice from the added fresh ginger. Here is a healthful way to help you squeeze in a serving of vegetables and get some green in on St. Patrick’s Day!
2. Spa Water
You can find filtered water with various fresh fruits, veggies and herbs in them at some Whole Foods markets or you can easily make this yourself at home. Take any fresh greens you have at home and throw them into your water bottle or into your next glass of water. I love adding cucumber, lemon and thyme to my water giving it an incredibly refreshing taste and smell. This is a simple way to add a little bit of green into your day.
3. CC Gluten Freed’s Dirty Martini Recipe
I never had much of a sweet tooth so savory cocktails are usually my go-to. Smirnof may not be the fanciest of vodkas but I know it is gluten-free so I opt for safe option when stocking my bar for a party. The trick to a perfect dirty martini is finding great olives. I use Jose Andres’s Spicy Gordal Olives. Want my recipe?
Combine the following in a shaker with ice:
2 oz of Smirnoff Vodka
1 oz of Dry Vermouth
1/2 oz of Olive juice
– shake vigorously – pour – garnish with 2 olives – enjoy-
There are plenty of ways to go green and gluten-free for St. Patrick’s Day! Enjoy!
