The Wayland in NYC is a favorite bar of the {Healthy} Cooking Camp girls.  I mean how can you not love a spot that puts kale juice in one of their cocktails?  So we were especially thrilled to see the Garden Variety Margarita recipe featured on!  Cheers!

This spicy ginger kick and the subtle, unmistakably grassy sweetness of kale elevates this vegetal variation on the margarita, from the New York City bar The Wayland.
