Recipe for the Kale-tini below. Find the recipe for Ellen’s cocktail here.
For Two Cocktails
2 cups tightly packed kale
1 cup water
juice two limes
4 oz vodka or gin
1 Tbls agave syrup
Cut enough kale into pieces to fill a 2-cup measure. Cover these pieces with water and place in a food processor or blender. Puree for a minute.
Strain the solids out of the pureed kale with a fine sieve, pressing with a spatula to get as much juice from the leaves as possible.
Squeeze the limes and add the lime juice, vodka, and agave syrup. Mix well or shake in a mason jar to combine. Pour into glasses over ice. Garnish with a small kale leaf.
