The folks at Hot-Yoga/Pressed Juice use natural ingredients like romaine lettuce, spinach, kale, apple, lemon and limes. Those are ingredients in a drink they call, “Green Giant.”
“It’s really sweet. you can really taste the apple and lemon that’s my favorite part of it,” said Alayna Copeland who was working in the kitchen.
It’s one of four juices they prepared for the golf tournament.
“We have two different juices, Pink Passion and Green Giant and then we also provide two different wellness shots which is really popular with the players,” said Monica Nepote.
They were so popular last year that the golf course ran out of product and they had to rush more juice into production. This year the initial order was 28 gallons of juice and two gallons of wellness drinks. Those wellness drinks are concentrated and go by the names, “Health by Death, and Toxin Ninja.” Don’t let the names throw you. The makers say they’re good for you.
“Health by death is that huge immunity boost that’s great for everything that’s going on over the last year, especially,” said Nepote.
“Well, it’s all natural there’s no kind of supplements in it. Just the fruits and vegetables we put in there, grind it, press it and its all natural,” said Copeland.
The 3M open says they get local vendors involved whenever possible.
“You know how Minnesotans are, we like to have our own things,” said 3M Open Tournament Director Mike Welch. “We’re proud about what we do here. Everything we do is around our community.”
And that’s an opportunity that can be good for a local business.
“So it was great for us as a local business getting our name out there, providing in our own community and getting our juice out there for people to taste.”
Other local vendors include Red Savoy Pizza and of Blaine, along with Parlour Burger and Revival Chicken of Minneapolis.
