Loved this! Despite my initial skepticism of the parsley in a drink I really felt it was a great, refreshing drink and it was beautiful as well. Mine came out quite a bit darker than the pic posted, and I actually split the parsley mix between 2 glasses before topping with the club soda. I do think you can get away with a little less sugar in this if you don't want a very sweet drink.
I have to say I had reservations while preparing this drink. It is not very attractive in the blender. Staining it made all the difference. :) It was actually much nicer than I anticipate. Very fresh and refreshing. It is 84 degrees this afternoon and this hits the spot! I made a small change. Rather than use sugar and then club soda I skipped the sugar and used 7UP.

Not exactly my cup of tea, but still an interesting libation. I guess I should have been juicing up all kinds of veggies to drink, in order to keep a little healthy, but I didn't! I'm sure this would go over well to someone who was used to drinking veggies. Thnx for sharing your recipe, BakinBaby. Made for the Voracious Vagabonds of ZWT 6.
