Sun worshippers are wise to aloe vera’s use as a topical post-soleil soother. But long before the first Scottsdale sunbather slathered gelatinous plant leaves on her lobster-red shoulders, the Knights Templar were lacing their wine with aloe. Others have eaten the spiky succulent to treat everything from tuberculosis to wrinkles.
The jury is still out on aloe’s miracle healing properties, but there’s no debating the antioxidant boost of Sprouts’ Detox Margarita, made with triple-distilled organic tequila and vitamin C-rich aloe pulp. The spa-embedded restaurant employs a team of health-conscious mixologists who combine 1 oz. fresh aloe juice, 1 oz. Casa Noble Silver Tequila, 1/2 oz. Cointreau, and 2 oz. lime sour with 1/4 oz. naturally sweet agave nectar. Shake, strain and pour over ice for a spring refresher worthy of a toast to good health.
