Beverage Monday. Absolut Los Angeles

How cool is this? ABSOLUT® has resurrected its cities collection and Los Angeles is the second in the series. New Orleans came out last year. They are also donating $250,000 to Green Way LA an environmental group.

It is a blend Acai, Acerola, Pomegranate, and Blueberry. The made it with those flavors to showcase LA's trendy, environmentally forward, and health-conscious ideals. It is made with 100% natural ingredients.

Green Way LA is an organization dedicated to restoring nature’s services while providing for the health and welfare of the community. The donation will be used towards the “Green Streets” initiative. By modifying streets, curbs, and sidewalks, and by planting appropriate trees and other vegetation, rainwater and other polluted urban runoff is naturally cleaned before otherwise flowing unfiltered into the Pacific Ocean.

Here are a couple of recipes from their site using ABSOLUT® Los Angeles. Let's celebrate the City of Angels!
