Organic Avenue just launched new summer juices and smoothies online and in its Manhattan and Southampton stores.
The new menu additions, created by Organic Ave’s chef Peter Cervoni, include a pure Lemon Juice Shot ($2)—great for a morning alkalinity boost, and the cutely named Guaranimal Shot ($4), Guarana being a naturally caffeinated herb, also great for the a.m.
Back in stock is the seasonal whole Watermelon Juice, which includes the pressed seeds and rind ($12). I get a chi-cooling effect from drinking it—and am tempted to pour it into an ice cube tray and serve in a spritzer at tomorrow’s BBQ.
But the one really calling my name is the Turmeric Tonic, which has lemon and ginger in it and just 1 gram of sugar. Well+Good factoid: Turmeric is a powerful antioxidant—and an adaptogen, meaning it helps the body cope with stress. We’ll drink to that. —Melisse Gelula
