I get it, celebrating the birth of your blog may be a tad self-indulgent. But that said, With Food + Love is my baby. This is my space. This is a piece of the interwebs that I’ve claimed as my own and that I call home. And I guess you’d say I’m brave enough to let the whole world into it.

You see, each week as I’m creating these plant-empowered recipes, I have you in mind. Yes, you. I pour my heart and soul into the food I make and the photographs that I take. This is an extension of me, my life and my work and I’m proud of it. So – let’s party!! Thank you all so much for reading and spreading the word about With Food + Love. As cliche as it sounds, it really, truly does mean the world to me.

Okay now for the fun part – let’s celebrate with Boozy Green Lemonades! So I love a delicious cocktail and as you know I also love a delicious green juice, I put these two together and I think I birthed something pretty freaking genius.

This Green Lemonade is delicious on its own, but by adding a little boozy spirit, you can really kick it up a notch or two. I suggest pairing it with gin, vodka, clear rum or cachaca.

Boozy Green Lemonade

Makes 4 drinks!!


  • 3 celery stalks, leaves and all
  • 1 apple
  • 2 lemons + 1 more for garnishing
  • 4 large handfuls of spinach or kale
  • 4 ounces of your favorite spirit {mine is SAGE}
  • 1 cup sparkling water or club soda

One by one, run the celery, apple, lemons and greens through your juicer.

Fill 4 glasses up with ice. Evenly distribute the green lemonade {about 1/4 cup in each glass}.

Pour in an ounce of your favorite spirit in each glass, stir.

Top each glass with a 1/4 cup of club soda and garnish with lemons.

Sip responsibly!!
