Equipment

  • cutting board and sharp knife
  • apple peeler
  • food processor
  • nut bag (or cheese cloth)
  • mixing bowl or container for juice

Ingredients

For the Juice Mixer

  • 2 tbsp. ginger - chopped into small pieces
  • ½ cucumber - sliced into 5 or 6 pieces
  • ½ green apple - sliced into small pieces
  • 3 sprigs of mint
  • 1 lemon - juiced
  • ¼ cup white granulated sugar
  • ½ cup water

For the Cocktail

  • 4 oz. prosecco - or champagne
  • 2 oz. juice mixture
  • lemon slice - for garnish
  • cucumber slice - for garnish

Instructions

To Make the Juice Mixer

  • Peel and cut 2 tbsp. of ginger into chunky pieces, slice ½ a cucumber into 5 or 6 slices and slice ½ green apple into small pieces.
  • Stir together ¼ cup white granulated sugar with ½ cup of water in a cup, then add it to a food processor with juice from one lemon, 3 sprigs of mint, ginger, apple and cucumber. Process on PUREE for about 10 seconds.
  • Pour mixture into a nut bag, or cheese cloth. I prefer a nut bag because it doesn’t allow any pulp at all to come through.
  • Squeeze juice out of the pulp into a bowl or container. Refrigerate

For the Cocktail

  • Pour 4 oz. of prosecco into a coup glass. Pour 2 oz. of the juice mixture into the glass and gently stir. Garnish with lemon and cucumber slices and serve.

Notes

The juice mixture will last for 5 days in a refrigerated container, but you can freeze the mixture for up to a year.
You can also use the mixer in other cocktails! I love it with gin or sake! Try mixing a 2 to 1 ratio (2 parts liquor, 1 part juice). It’s tasty as is, but with a little splash of St. Germain, they make such extra lovely cocktails!
See post for detailed instructions with photos of the process.
