The sweet vegetable flavor that shines through makes this a good alternative to brunch cocktail stalwarts like the Bloody Mary and Mimosa. You can cut back on the gin if you don’t want a drink this strong. A sprinkling of cinnamon on top, and it might remind you of carrot cake with a kick.
- 1 ½ oz gin
- 1 ½ oz fresh carrot juice
- ½ oz ginger liqueur
Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into cocktail glass over ice. Optional: Sprinkle some cinnamon on top.
We juiced some carrots ourselves and used Beefeater 24 gin and Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur. We chose this gin is a little less dry than some other brands. You can substitute store-bought carrot juice and your favorite brands and adjust to taste if needed.
