Using fresh fruit and vegetable juices in creative cocktails is a trend that isn’t going anywhere any time soon. But the new café at the Palms is putting a little extra twist and a lot of extra flavor behind one of its newest drinks, Abe’s Favorite Mary.

The Lucky Penny’s version of a green Bloody Mary, Abe’s is a smooth sipping, brightly colored beverage made with Svedka vodka and a housemade juice blend. But this ain’t no kale combo—this green stuff is packed with roasted poblano and serrano peppers, tangy tomatillos along with green tomatoes, English cucumbers, spinach, parsley, cilantro, scallions, green Tabasco sauce, roasted garlic purée for extra oomph, Worcestershire sauce, horseradish, fresh lime juice and salt and pepper. That’s a whole meal’s worth of ingredients, tucked neatly into your breakfast glass.

It’s not surprising that the Lucky Penny would offer such a dynamic drink, considering the new Palms spot boasts a menu that covers all the bases between classic coffee shop fare, late-night cravings and healthy dishes that will make you feel good no matter the hour. Lucky Penny at the Palms, 866-942-7770; daily 24 hours.
