In today’s Episode…

We’re cheating – a bit. Most of what we’re talking about are vegetables, but there are a few ingredients that aren’t “technically” veggies – like tomatoes, beets, etc. Hopefully you can forgive us for taking a few liberties.

Five Ways to Feature Veggies:

1: Veggie Juice

Break out your juicer, there’s a lot you can do with vegetable juice – from carrot to celery to not-quite-veggies like tomatoes and beets.

2: Puree

It’s not quite Juice, but it’s not quite muddled either. Purees are a great way to keep the veggie nutrients in your drink – but beware of some of the texture issues that can come with!

3: Muddling

Getting a bit more common here – muddling veggies like cucumber and jalapenos is a bit more popular behind the bar.

4: Shrubs

“Drinking Vinegars” as they are often called, are such a great way to bring flavor – and you can make them with just about anything. So why not veggies?

5: Garnish

Last but not least, we can’t forget garnish. Veggies don’t have the reputation for being as “pretty” as some fruits, but I’d argue they really are. Think outside the celery stick – there are a lot of great veggie garnish ideas out there as well.
