Friday Cocktail Time #13 - Berry Good For You Cocktail

Alcohol is bad for you. :(
Antioxidants are good for you. :)
Mix them together and it all balances out into a delicious drink.

Today's cocktail is a little mix of antioxidants and alcohol, along with some lime for tartness and Mexican sage as a back note.

Berry Good For You Cocktail
1) Place 1 cup of ice into a martini shaker and add:

2 oz berry flavored fruit juice drink (like Naked Juice Berry Blast or Odwalla Berries GoMega)
1 oz maraschino syrup
2 oz white or silver tequila
1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 - 2 fresh Mexican sage leaves (If you're a sage fanatic, add as many leaves as you like.)

2) Shake until icy, then strain into a martini glass.
3) Garnish with lime and berries.

(Special thanks to reader and buddy, m2, for the fresh sage!)

4 red beans:
