Kale and Green Appletini

I have been in love 😍 with ALOHA lately. From my morning protein shake (try it free) to my meal replacement bar at lunch, they've got it going on! Which is why I'm totally digging this martini... And I'm not normally a fan of an "Appletini," as they're usually super sugary and syrupy and unusually bright green. Not this one. Alo-haa!

1 cup water or coconut water

1 green apple, pit and steam removed

2 stalks celery

Vodka Lemon Kicker

My ultimate favorite juice is the Suja Lemon Love. It's like the Master Cleanse, but without the maple syrup and sweetened lightly with stevia. It's lemon water with cayenne. It's got the perfect kick for a nice well-rounded cocktail. 

Ingredients: 

  • Suja Lemon Love 
  • Vodka 
  • Splash of Club Soda 

Directions: Pour ingredients over ice and stir. Garnish with a lemon wedge.

Clean Green

I love me some GREENS. The Suja Twelve Essentials is one of my favorite. It's full of vitamins, all organic, and yummy. Which is why a little vodka with this goes a long way! 

Ingredients: 

  • Suja Twelve Essentials 
  • Cucumber Vodka 
  • Fresh Lime 

Directions: Combine ingredients in a cocktail mixer and pour over ice. Garnish with lime wedge or cucumber slice.

Spiked Horchata

This week on #NoFilter with Zack Peter, we made decided to take Califia's new Horchata and mix it with some homemade spicy cinnamon whiskey (get the recipe here). It was so good! I'd recommend adding an extra dash of cinnamon to really amp up the flavor. You're welcome.

 

Drink of the Week: Horchata On Fire (Dairy-free & under 150 calories) 

  • 1 part Califia Farms Classic Cinnamon Horchata
  • 1 part cinnamon whiskey
  • Ice

 

Combine ingredients in a shaker and pour over ice. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.

 

Mix it up: Eliminate potential additives by infusing your favorite organic whiskey with some cinnamon sticks and dried chili peppers. Get the recipe from PopSugar.

 

Make it Skinny: Ditch the dark liquor and swap the whiskey for a clear liquor instead. (Like Tru Organic Vanilla Vodka)

 

 

 

Classic Vegan White Russian

I am OBSESSED with the new Califia Cold Brew Coffee and the Hazelnut creamer. I don't do creamer, but when I do, it's this one and it's heavenly. Combine that with vodka? And I just died and went to heaven...

 

Vegan White Russian
• 1.5 parts vodka (preferably organic)

• 0.5 part Califia Farms Concentrated Cold Brew Coffee (add a little water to lighten it up)

• Splash of Califia Farms Vanilla Almondmilk Coffee Creamer

• Ice
Directions: Combine ingredients in shaker and pour over ice.

 

Mix it up: Try Pecan Caramel or Hazelnut coffee creamer in place of Vanilla for an added flavor

 

Make it Skinny: Cut the calories and sugar by swapping the coffee creamer with Califia Farms Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk

 

Why It’s Better: Dairy-free (perfect for those with dairy intolerance) and lower in calories. Plus, by eliminating the traditional coffee liqueur with fresher ingredients, you’re kicking the extra sugar.
