I've only had kale once in my life.  My sister-in-law's brother's wife made it for us.  She sautéed it with garlic and I think a little splash of vinegar.  I can't remember.  It was good.  But then, she's a great cook.  She probably could have sautéed shoelaces and they would have been delicious.

Then Ed and I went to breakfast and saw a Kale Tonic on the menu.  Kale Tonic??  It had Kale, Fuji Apple, English Cucumber, and Lemon.  Fujis are my favorite apple, and I like cuke and lemon.  And it's a cold drink.  We thought it might be refreshing.  We decided to get one and both sample it.

It's green.

VERY green.

Neon green.  


I have to say that the color was a little off-putting.  I've never had a green drink.  I'm not a juicer.  Shocker, right?

And no, I've never even had green beer on St. Patty's Day.  Not my thing.

We sipped.  I didn't taste any kale and neither did Ed.  Although how could I know?  I'm pretty sure I don't even know what kale tastes like.  I did detect apple, but no cucumber flavor.  Cucumbers are so mild anyway, do they even have a flavor?  And no lemon.  I love almost anything with a citrus zing and I wasn't getting that flavor.  Ed didn't get either.

So it was mostly a mild apple juice served up in liquid the color of antifreeze.  I probably wouldn't order this again.

I've decided I'm definitely in the #NeverKale camp.
