There many different types of cocktails that can go with green vegetables. Some of the most popular options include:
  • Mimosa: This classic brunch cocktail is made with champagne and orange juice. The sweetness of the orange juice pairs well with the bitterness of green vegetables like asparagus, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts.
