It’s a bloody good day to be alive! So stop whining! Haha. Ok, maybe YOU are not whining. Sure sounds funny though and I’m sure someone needed to hear that. I know it does me well to hear that at times. :giggles:

Here is an early evening snack in the yard to get my juices (no pun intended) flowing. This is not an alcoholic drink. (Hence the 2nd reason it is called “Whine Not”. Get it??) I actually do not consume alcohol. However, I do fancy drinking out of a wine glass every now and again. There is something elegant, romantic and inviting about drinking out of one, so I dress up my drinks (even water) on occasion. This just feels like one of those drinks you do it with. Nah’mean?

The ingredients to this bloody, red wine impersonating drink are as follows…

  • 4 carrots
  • 1 beet
  • 1 cucumber
  • handful of kale
  • handful of chard
  • handful of spinach
  • 1/2 a handful of dandelion
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of raw maca powder

(All ingredients are organic.)

If you like a big’ole pint glass to yourself, enjoy! If not, there is room to share this with one or 2 others.

The juice is complimented with a side of red & green grapes. A little sweetness to cut the bitterness. Ahhhhhh….
