Mister McKinney's in action on the Houston History Bus.
Those who have experienced Mister McKinney’s Historic Houston open-air school-bus tours know the historian cuts a dashing, athletic figure in person. And everyone with a fondness for cold-pressed juice know the pressurized process extracts three to five times more vitamins and minerals than any other method.
Combine the two, and you get the Mint-ster McKinney, a smooth and enlivening green juice available for pickup at Houston’s Nourish Juice & Smoothie Bar. Kale, spinach, cucumber, celery, apple, lemon and mint are cold-pressed to perfection, inspired by the love of mint shared by Mister McKinney (also an on-the-air personality) and his 92-year-old grandmother.
The benefits are right there on the bottle: It’s supposed to be great for digestion, high blood pressure, soothing muscles and joints, kidneys, and good skin.
How else do you think the man who gave up to five tours a day by memory alone (in pre-coronavirus times) while fielding questions fuels his body and mind?
And, there’s never been a better time to fuel up. And support a local foodie biz, too. (This writer has personally tasted the Houstonian-inspired juice drink too, and can also give an enthusiastic endorsement.)
“I’m a champion for small business and supporter of Nourish since the start, so I was honored when Nourish co-owner Jerry Doiron came up with the clever name,” Mister McKinney tells PaperCity.
Nourish Juice & Smoothie Bar on West Gray is offering an Immune-Kit with two juices and two juice shots for just $19 (half off the regular pricing) — perfect for your battle against COVID-19. Pair Mint-ster McKinney with the Juan Carlos, named for the famous Montrose Rollerblader and America’s Got Talent star, which blends spinach, pineapple, grape, cilantro and lime with flax oil.
