We love a delicious holiday Margarita, and this creation blends in good-for-you-greens, creating an amazing, fresh and delicious take on the classic. If you don’t have the means to juice fresh fennel, you can still get that unique taste by adding the herbaceous tops, called fronds, to the mix.
1 To a blender, add 3 cups (750 mL) ice, 1½ cups (375 mL) tequila, ½ cup (125 mL) agave syrup, 2 cups (500 mL) limeade, 1 cup (250 mL) fresh spinach, ½ cup (125 mL) chopped green seedless grapes, ½ cup (125 mL) fennel juice (recipe follows, or substitute 2 tbsp/30 mL diced fennel fronds) and 1 cup (250 mL) chilled water. Blend until slushy and pour into glasses. Garnish each with a fennel frond. Makes about 10 servings
