Apple Ginger Cocktail

Apple Ginger Cocktail via abeautifulmess.comI first discovered this combination last spring when Katie and I were testing cocktail recipes for Emma's bachelorette party! We were making lots of crazy flavored combinations and after a few hours I busted out my juicer (because, you know, it wouldn't be right if we didn't make a HUGE mess!) We tried a few combinations that included fresh apple juice including this rosewater one and eventually figured out that fresh green apple juice is amazing when mixed with Crème de Gingembre. 

The thing I love most about this drink is that it's perfect for brunch… or anytime really! It's light and refreshing and doesn't taste boozy at all. I like mimosas, but I LOVE this drink. This drink is also great for those who don't drink alcohol because it's every bit as enjoyable without the Crème de Gingembre. I'm sorry this last paragraph is kinda one big sales pitch for my awesome cocktail, but I swear to you- it's worth it!

Fresh Apple Juice (approximately three small granny smith apples per glass!) 
Ginger Juice (just throw a little 2 inch piece of ginger in for each serving)
Crème de Gingembre

In a juice glass mix 2 ounces Creme De Ginger with fresh juice and serve with ice. For parties I make a large pitcher and let guests serve themselves!

  • Mhh…It looks very good!! If you like coffee, you also can try my “Sorbetto al caffé”, a very Italian-style drink!


  • Joni, I always use my juice the same day I juice it. You can add a little lime to help it stay fresh, but I don’t recommend waiting more than a few hours to drink. The green color comes from the apple’s skin, so don’t peel it before you juice.

    XOXO! elsie

  • This sounds lush! I have no idea what that flavour combo would taste like but I can’t wait to try! xx Emmi

  • I love apple and ginger together, but I’ve never tried it with green apple. Sounds like a great combination whether with alcohol or not =)

  • Love this! I just tried ginger for the first time the other day, and I’m a little bit obsessed with it. So I definitely need to give this a try!


  • This looks so good. Got to make it. Hope you have a good day.

  • Hi Girls,

    I’m big into juicing and follower of A Beautiful Mess for about a year or so. This drink looks so tempting, a must try! Check out my most recent post, your book is on my work space table, and I used your app. Thanks for sharing.:))

    Happy Saturday!

  • Hi, I like lots of ur great ideas!
    How do you keep fresh apple juice green? Coz i know its always so easy to turn light brownish colour if you don’t take it straight away…

  • haha! i’ve been doing a very simliar thing lately but cheating using juice from whole foods. i throw in some shrub ~1-2oz and then top off with green juice and seltzer…a TOTAL health tonic right? 🙂

  • Sammie- it’s this one- I’ve had it for a few years. 🙂

  • Ahhh! This really makes me wish I had a juicer! There are so many good juice recipes that are really nutritious and I feel like I’m missing out! Maybe someday~

  • That looks so fresh! And perfect for fall! Looks like I may need a juicer… Thanks for sharing!

  • Wow! Yesterday I was at this bar at the hotel “The Thief” in Oslo (where Rihanna and Justin Bieber live when visting Oslo) and I tried this cocktail but without the alcohol! 🙂 Its fresh and tastes really cool! Love it!

  • Looks like quite the refreshing drink! I love the taste of green apples- it gives off this sour yet mouth watering pleasantness of a taste. I like mimosas too, so I’m sure this will be just as pleasing. Can’t wait to try! Thank you for sharing!


  • I have already try it, it´s tasty and refreshing !
