"I bought a fancy juicer just to make this," says Chad Arnholt, bartender at Comstock Saloon in San Francisco. "The savory ingredients--cucumbers, peppers, herbs--are unexpected and make the drink feel healthy." He sets out a pitcher of the juice for parties, cookouts or sci-fi movie nights along with tequila, beer and ginger beer so guests can customize their own drinks.

In a juicer, juice 1 bunch of mint, 1 bunch of dill and 1 seeded jalapeño with 3 to 4 green apples to yield 17 ounces of juice. Transfer to the pitcher and add 10 ounces fresh green or yellow tomato juice, 8 ounces fresh cucumber juice and 2 ounces fresh lime juice. Add 1 teaspoon kosher salt and stir well. Makes about 37 ounces.
