Good Stuff: One good pizza, one good cocktail

One good pizza

Buddy's Pizza boasts a new Kale Lover's pizza, served on a multigrain crust.

Spinach pizza was just the start. Thanks to Buddy's Pizza, Detroit's original square pizza has made indulging in a slice of pie guilt-free. In addition to healthy options such as veggie toppings, low fat or dairy-free cheese, and multigrain and thin crusts, now you can add superfood kale to any pizza (or order Buddy's new Kale Lover's pizza, which is served on the multigrain crust).

One good cocktail

Try this Sour Green Apple Margarita when the flu hits — or to celebrate if you escaped it.

Rub a lime wedge around the rim of 4 glasses and dip the rim in the kosher salt. Set aside.

Combine 1/2 cup jalapeno simple syrup (recipe below), 1 cup sour green apple juice, 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice, 3/4 cup tequila, 1/4 cup triple sec or Grand Marnier in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and pour over 4 ice-filled glasses. Garnish with lime wedge.

Jalapeno Simple Syrup: In a small pan, combine 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water and 1 thinly sliced jalapeno and bring to a simmer for a few minutes. Add the contents to the jar of a blender and puree on high until smooth. Put the syrup in the fridge to chill.
