Whether he's making a simply delicious salad or creating a cocktail fresh from the garden for Oprah and her friends, Eduardo Chavez knows how to squeeze the very best flavors out of fruits and vegetables.

Makes 2 drinks


  • ¼ cup fresh zucchini juice (see note, below)
  • ¼ cup lemon juice, preferably from a Meyer lemon
  • 1 Tbsp. agave syrup
  • ¼ cup roasted-jalapeño-infused tequila
  • ¼ cup fresh tangerine juice (from about 2 tangerines)


Total time: 30 minutes (Plus 1 to 3 days for infusing tequila)

In a cocktail shaker, combine all ingredients and add ice. Shake well. Strain into 2 chilled martini glasses and serve.

NOTE: To make zucchini juice, use a juice extractor. Alternatively, coarsely chop 1 zucchini and place in a blender or a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Puree, then strain through a fine-mesh strainer.
