CarrotOrange Gazpacho and Power Smoothies

Carrot-Orange Gazpacho:

Makes 16 servings, 1 1/2 ounces each

We’ll be passing small sips of this refreshing cold soup in shot glasses as guests enter the Governors Ball. You can make it easily by buying the bottled fresh organic carrot, apple, and orange juices you’ll find in the refrigerated section of many health-conscious markets today. Or, if you have a countertop electric juice extractor, make the juices just before serving and chill the mixture by shaking it with ice in a cocktail shaker.

2 cups fresh organic carrot juice

1/2 cup fresh organic apple juice

1/2 cup fresh organic orange juice

Thin slices fresh carrot or apple, for garnish (optional)


Combine the juices in a nonreactive pitcher or jar. Cover and refrigerate for several hours, until well chilled.

Meanwhile, put 16 shot glasses, about 2 ounces each, on a tray. Chill in the freezer.

Just before serving, remove the pitcher or jar from the refrigerator and the glasses from the freezer. Briefly stir the juice and then pour about 1 1/2 ounces into each shot glass. If you like, garnish with carrot or apple slices.

Serve immediately.


Power Smoothie Shots:

Makes about 3 cups, 12 (2-ounce) servings

Juicing, long popular among health-conscious people everywhere, not least in Hollywood. The new high-quality juice extractors you can buy everywhere, combined with the more widespread availability of fresh organic produce, has made everyone even more juice-conscious than ever. So you can be sure we’ll be passing trays of this fresh, organic juice blend to revive everyone as they enter the Governors Ball after the Oscars ceremony.


6 leaves organic green kale, tough ribs removed

4 large stalks organic celery, leaves trimmed

2 organic green apples, cut into wedges

1 medium organic English cucumber

1 cup packed organic baby spinach leaves

1-inch piece fresh organic ginger root, peeled


Just before serving, prepare all the ingredients as directed. Put all of the ingredients through a juice extractor, stir well, and serve immediately, pouring into chilled 2-ounce shot glasses.
