Juicing citrus with its peel can be risky business, but a handful of whole kumquats (peel, seeds, and all) gives this juice a wonderful brightness and tartness, plus a touch of bitterness that makes it almost cocktail-like. Ginger adds a little spice, and pear gives the combination a rich, smooth texture and just enough sweetness.


  • 1/4 ounce peeled fresh ginger root
  • 12 kumquats
  • 2 ripe Anjou pears, cored and quartered


  1. 1.

    Juice ginger and fruit in order listed. Stir juices together and serve immediately, over ice if desired.
