Five Perfect Drinks for Your Juice Cleanse!

A friend of mine told me she was on the last day of her juice cleanse the other day. She didn't seem very happy. In fact, she couldn't wait to eat real food again. As she sipped her juice, I felt bad for her. Immediately, I knew she hadn't enjoyed her cleanse because she had simply chosen the wrong juice drinks. Cleanses can be fun, you guys. I promise. You just have to know what juices to drink. Warning ahead of time: This could get expensive. Juice-cleansing is pricy. But it's worth the results. You just have to stay committed to it. Without further ado, here are the five best juice recipes for your juice cleanse (in no particular order):

Screwdriver

Orange juice offers the Vitamin C your body craves. Vodka is delicious. Best cleanse ever.

Mojito

The more mojitos you have, the better you will feel. It's a known fact. Plus, muddling helps you burn extra calories. And the lime juice is great for digestion!

Margarita

On the rocks with salt, silly. Do not order a frozen margarita. Ever. It will give you a brain freeze, and it won't give your body the restorative properties from the fresh lime juice.

Martini

Olive juice is so good for you. Enjoy the antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties and instant partytimes in this beverage.

Cosmopolitan

Never have a UTI again! The cranberry juice in this beverage will cleanse you so hard.

Last year, the event raised $100,000 for people living with MS, and 750 people could be seen shoving sausage links into their faces. And one time, she won a James Beard Award for Humor in Writing. That was pretty cool.
