In my quest for healthy delicious cocktails, I couldn't ignore the large, dark green nutrition packed leaves that have everyone in a craze.  Different varieties line the produce shelves and you can choose from 7 different types of kale salad at Whole Foods!  So why not consume this uber healthy juice in the form of a cocktail.

The crisp tart green apple combines nicely with the grassy kale and fresh ginger gives it just the kick it needs. You can use any liquor, but I thought the Veev acai berry spirit fit very nice.  I'd also recommend gin, vodka, or pisco.
