This juice is based in tomatoes and beets, but it has a little kick from the addition of jalapeños that will get your immune system revved up while capitalizing on flavor.

To keep the drink looking festive for Christmas parties, you can juice the ingredients separately and then carefully layer them in large, clear glasses. This recipe will make one juice, so double or triple if you plan on sharing with friends and family.Altogether, this juice packs the entire daily requirement for vitamin C, making it a great choice for getting through the winter months without catching the dreaded colds or flu.
