Not Your Garden Variety Cocktail…

This carrot-ginger elixir is a fresh-from-the-garden boozy delight, highlighting the vibrant vitamin boost of carrot juice with spicy ginger simple syrup and twist of lime. At Pinch, we love incorporating familiar yet unexpected flavors into our cocktails. Taking the culinary approach of if it tastes good on a plate, let’s attempt to translate that flavor into a glass. Here’s to welcoming summer with more garden-in-a-glass cocktails! Cheers!

Serves 1 drink

3 oz carrot juice
2 oz vodka (for a stronger kick use bourbon)
1/2 oz fresh ginger simple syrup
1/2 oz fresh lime juice

Combine all ingredients into an ice filled shaker.
Shake hard and strain into glass of choice.
Garnish with carrot greens or lime zest.
