Halloween is a time of spooks and spirits, goblins and vampires, and for most people amazing Halloween themed drinks! But to make these drinks you have to add sugar heavy mixers that weigh you down and add hundreds of calories. Well not anymore, Main Squeeze Juice Co has made the ultimate guide to Halloween cocktails that cut the calories in half and are made with 100% cold-pressed juice.
Our first cocktail of the evening is “The Black Pearl Margarita!” This black cauldron of tequila and fresh pressed juice is one of our most popular drinks. We start off with our Detox Juice [ Activated charcoal + Filtered H2O + Agave + Lemon ]. This juice has many benefits, but our favorite is that it’s shown to improve/lessen hangovers! The activated charcoal is the superstar ingredient – it attracts toxins and chemicals in your body and naturally flushes them out. Lemon juice is an excellent source of Vitamin C which gives you plenty of energy for your long Halloween night We use a vegan sugar Agave, for a hint of sweetness, but don’t worry – studies show it has lower glycemic index than regular sugar, making it a better choice for diabetics.
Our simple, quick, and nutritious Black Pearl Margarita is sure to be a festive, crowd pleaser! TIP: add in halloween-festive ice molds like our skull ice cubes for a freaky- fabulous cocktail!
BLACK PEARL MARGARITA
Makes 1 serving
Lime wedge (2)
¼ cup Ice Cubes/Ice Molds
8 oz Detox Juice
2 oz Tequila
Instructions: Rim glass with lime wedge/water. Dip margarita glass in pink Himalayan salt. Add ice cubes to shaker. Pour Detox and tequila into shaker. Shake all ingredients until combined. Pour shaker contents into rimmed margarita glass. Garnish with lime wedge. Enjoy!
Then we have our “Fountain of Youth”, this is a great drink to kick off your Halloween festivities – morning or night! This is our Main Squeeze take on the typical mimosa using our Youth Juice [Carrot + Pineapple + Sweet Potato ]. We use at least 3-5 lbs. of produce in each 16 oz bottle – which means even 1-2 ounces will have you feeling nourished and revived! Carrot is the start of the show – and is the highest contributor of Vitamin A and antioxidant carotenoids. The benefits are endless, but the cancer-fighting and heart-healthy effects are some of our favorite perks! Pineapple balances the recipe with a little sweetness – but it comes packed with immune-boosting vitamin C and the magnificent mineral magnesium (see what we did there?). Magnesium helps strengthen bones as well as combat arthritis and joint pain. Sweet potatoes contain an extra dose of carotenoids but are also a high source of vitamin B6 which helps with fighting inflammation, and works against the effects of aging.
FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH
Makes 1 serving
Ice Cubes/garnish (optional)
Instructions: Add 2 oz or more of Youth to a champagne flute. Top with champagne of choice and fill as desired. Add halloween garnish like a skull cube or spooky spider to keep you feelin’ festive!
