Vodka • Savory
Kale Martini

Green juice has never been so tempting. If you’re looking for a healthier way to sip your vodka and ginger beer, this earthy Kale Martini from Albert Dempompeis of NYC’s Chalk Point Kitchen is just what the doctor ordered. Those who own juicers are already in business, but if you don’t have one, then a trip to the local juice bar is in order. Or, if you’re feeling lazy, simply mix 3.5 ounces of your favorite green juice blend with vodka and ginger beer for an instant pick-me-up.
