Green Goddess

This green, refreshing and simple recipe is made ahead of time for both ease and flexibility of service. It can be used as a cocktail mixer, simply combined with the drinker’s preferred white spirit. Or, it can enjoyed just as it is, as a bright and refreshing non-alcoholic juice.

We originally wrote this recipe for the Beefeater Gin brand, but it also works well mixed with vodka and unaged agave spirits to name but a few. Apart from being delicious, it’s this flexibility that makes this drink so effective when entertaining if your guests have different preferences. Read More

How to make it

  • 1 – Add all ingredients to blender cup
  • 2 – Blend all ingredients until smooth and ice is melted. The ice is here to keep the ingredients cold as they blend and add water to the drink
  • 3 – Pass and press ingredients through a sieve into a jug, or straight into glass. If you’d want a finer juice, you will want to strain through a cheesecloth or muslin. The choice is yours.
  • 4 – Serve juice long over cubed ice, top with fine slices fresh chilli
