Sugar Rush: Liquiteria's Grasshopper

I've always been skeptical of Liquiteria in the East Village, seemingly favored by only the most health-obsessed individuals. But I finally stopped in the other day after years of curiosity. It was the Grasshopper in the hands of a girl, fresh out of her morning yoga session, that caught my eye—a concoction of pear, apple, and pineapple juice, fresh-squeezed in front of my eyes, with not an ounce of added sweeter.
