    We know, we know – it’s our second cocktail recipe this week. What can we say? We love our juice cocktails – and we know you do too. One of our favorite things to do with the juice when we’re not on a cleanse is to drop off a few choice bottles with bartenders in L.A. we love. Lately, that includes Gaby Mlynarczyk at the new Cadet in Santa Monica. She’s the one who designed the pea shoot and edible flower mojito we recently enjoyed for brunch (and shared on Instagram.) And a few weeks ago we spent an afternoon shaking up the drinkable beauties pictured above. Cadet’s old-school, masculine-chic vibe is nicely balanced by a menu that feels ultra modern, including the cocktail list.

    Gaby knocked our socks off with this smoky green juice and mezcal combination, a mind-blowing cold-brew coffee cocktail that contains “burnt sugar” syrup and Pressed Juicery’s chocolate almond milk, and a beet ginger juice concoction with ginger beer and rose water.

    Play mixologist this Father’s Day and put one of Gaby’s inspired creations to the test…
