One day in Maui, I tried to make my own version of a drink I had at the juice bar Liquiteria in New York City. I added pineapple because it was on the table and mint because it was in the garden, and after my first sip, I said, "O' Mai Mai!" Add vodka if you wish.
Makes 2 cups
- 3 apples, cored
- 6 mint sprigs, plus more for garnish
- 2 cups pineapple
- 1 1/2 inch knob of ginger
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1 ounce vodka (optional)
- Dash cayenne pepper
Total time: 10 minutes
Using a juice extractor, juice the apples, mint, pineapple, and ginger. Stir in lemon juice and vodka, if using. Top with cayenne and garnish with mint.
