Kale Ginger Margarita

I love ginger, I love kale but know nothing about making alcoholic drinks. It is my husband's domain and this is his recipe. Since, many of you are preparing to host annual Christmas or New year party or planning to make healthy eating and drinking resolutions, I thought someone must be interested in a healthy cocktail.
