THE MIX WITH YUKI Pressed Juice Cocktails

The Mix with Yuki Pressed Juice Cocktails raspberry mint vodka cooler strawberry jalapeno margarita

Awww love is in the air!  I hope everyone is having a great week and doing something fun this Valentine’s Day weekend.  I have come up with a couple of yummy cocktails that are not only tasty but healthy too.  I know this is about the time we fall of the bandwagon with our resolutions but stay strong friends!!  My body needed to be recharged from the holidays so I enlisted the help of my friends at Nekter Juice Bar in Anaheim Hills to get me back on track. These two cocktails are a great way to indulge without the guilt.  These drinks can easily be altered by adding different liquors and ingredients so have fun with it. However, if you want to keep it simple just add either flavor to a glass of bubbly.  Pick your poison and have a great Valentine’s Day weekend!
 
XOXO and Cheers, 
Yuki
