Up your brunch cocktail game with these fantastic green drinks.

1. Melon Sparkler with Tapioca Pearls

Food & Wine:

Mixing honeydew juice with the fizzy Italian wine Moscato makes a super-refreshing cocktail. Melon balls and chewy tapioca pearls are fun to eat and cute to look at.

2. Cucumber Cocktail with Chamomile Tonic

Food & Wine:

"A lot of cultures start meals with an aperitif or end with a digestif," says Jovial King. "Having a bitter drink before or after a meal is just a way to slow down, which is always great for digestion." Her chamomile tonic, with vodka and dandelion greens, is delicious in this refreshing, unsweetened cocktail.
