The annual Michigan vs. Michigan State football game is one month away, when I will once again find myself in a house divided. Prempting the many screams at the television from my devoted Spartan husband, this thoughtful Wolverine concocted a delicious and healthy cocktail to ease the tension (and take the edge off). Vodka optional, juicer required. GO BLUE, BABY.

  • 2 apples, quartered

  • 1 lime, rind removed

  • 1 green pepper, quartered

  • 1 lemon, rind removed (optional)

  • Garnish with lemon wedge and blueberries


  • Juice oranges, apples, lime, green pepper, and lemon

  • Pour juice into carafe and stir in vodka

  • Pour juice into highball glasses with ice and garnish with lemon and blueberries
