We live by the philosophy that every rule has an exception (or at least it should). And while we’re generally anti-juices (especially if it’s the only thing you’re eating for a meal), we are more than happy to make an exception. And one such exception was at Rancho Pescadero where we fell head-over-heels for this juice. This Wake Up Juice recipe is a little sweet, totally refreshing, and just enough ginger to get you going, it was the ideal way to start our days there — along with their delicious banana bread and lots of coffee, of course!
