In the end, Juicy Drinks disappointed me but it may not disappoint you, especially if you're armed with a good juicer and fonder of drinks that don't come spiked with the strong stuff.

Synopsis

40 recipes for delicious homemade juices and all kinds of juice-based drinks, from breakfast smoothies to evening cocktails to frozen desserts.

No carton will ever offer juices as fresh and as flavorful as those created at home, and with today’s high-powered extractors and blenders, you can make all kinds of delicious drinks with just the flip of a switch. Looking for an energy boost? Drink in the health benefits of just-pressed orange and carrot juice, a thick, vitamin-packed green smoothie, or a restorative wheatgrass elixir. Feeling a little more sinful? Craft colorful cocktails such as pomegranate cosmos, watermelon mojitos, or cool cucumber-jalapeno gimlets. Got a sweet tooth? Slurp up icy treats like kiwi frappes, strawberry daiquiris, or have fun freezing creamy raspberry ice pops, tangerine sorbet, plum granita, and much more.
     Chapters are organized by color, and are filled with gorgeous photographs for plenty of inspiration. Flip to the front of the book for information on the best fruits and vegetables for juicing, from spring cherries to autumn pears. Check out tips and tricks for getting the best performance out of your juice extractor and blender (and protecting your investment). And find everything you need to know to set up bar: recipes for infused simple syrups, and creative ideas for ice cubes and garnishes.
