Whether or not you’re into healthy eating and drinking, nowadays there are a host of vegetable and fruit laden cocktails to provide you the full spectrum of multivitamins and minerals. Here’s one that’s delicious and healthy:
The Arugula Gimlet
Arugula is a spicy leaf so naturally it makes a perfect accompaniment to gin. If you cannot get your hands on any Arugula, try some spinach or cilantro instead.
- 2 ounces gin
- ¾ ounce fresh lime juice
- ½ ounce simple syrup
- 1 cup arugula
- Lime wheel (for serving)
Combine gin, lime juice, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker. Fill halfway with ice, then top with arugula. Cover and shake vigorously until the outside of shaker is very cold, this should take about 20 seconds. Strain through a very fine-mesh sieve into a coupe glass; garnish with lime wheel.
