Sure, a simple glass of freshly squeezed orange juice provides sweet relief from the summer heat. But there are days when you want something more complex and adventurous, with leafy riffs and vitamins to keep your energy levels up. Whether it’s a cold-pressed juice or a healthy-ish cocktail, here’s where you can find the best, nutrient-rich thirst quenchers around town.
Sushi Roku’s Daily Dose cocktail
Sushi Roku serves up the most beautiful fish, in the most beautiful way. You might even go as far as to call it “edible art.” But aside from serving up premium sushi creations, the kitchen also slings some seriously delicious sips. Reserve a table during Wellness Week, and you’ll score 20% off the Daily Dose Cocktail—aswoon-worthy elixir made with antioxidant-rich acai, Bulldog gin, cucumber, Japanese plum wine and lime.
Nékter Juice Bar
Nékter Juice Bar makes jumping on the juice bandwagon oh-so-easy. With two locations in Newport Beach, Nékter is a hot spot for juice imbibers looking to cool down with an afternoon slurry. (We’re coming for you, watermelon berry smoothie). The menu boasts a smorgasbord of fruit and veggie juices, but if nothing strikes your fancy, you can pick your desired ingredients and create your custom blend.
You’ll be hard-pressed to find a cleanse exponent in town who hasn’t heard of JuiceMi. That’s because the people behind this local juice bar really take pride in their craft—dreaming up colorful, healthy potions than not only look pretty, but taste delicious. Not to mention, every concoction offered here is vegan and dairy-free. Head over to JuiceMi during Wellness Week and you’ll get a free cup of premium drip coffee with any purchase of $6.95 or more.
