The amber color of this juice may trick folks into believing it is apple juice or Texas tea. But the earthy, cucumber-sweet flavor of the Turk's cap red, berry-like fruit will be a pleasant surprise. Serve over ice with a few Turk's cap flower petals floating in each glass for an added wild-edible experience. And don't forget that some juices are meant to be spiked! Add some tequila, and you'll have a cocktail on the rocks.
