The Salad Bar cocktail at Driftwood Kitchen
When Driftwood Kitchen's John Nye collaborated with top mixologist Gaston Martinez, some unique concoctions were bound to emerge. The swanky Laguna BEach eatery crafts cocktails that incorporate unexpected ingredients. Nye's latest creation is The Salad Bar, a libation with the vegetable du jour: kale. It's like a green juice gone wild.
The Salad Bar
1/4 cup kale
1 slice red bell pepper
2 oz. sage liquor
2 oz. lemon sour
Muddle the pepper and kale. Pour other ingredients into a metal shaker and add ice. Shake, and strain into a double old-fashioned glass with fresh ice.
