Carrot Whiskey Cocktail
It’s about time for a cocktail, am I right??? A Carrot Whiskey Cocktail at that! A couple of weeks ago Matt and I decided to have our weekend be Monday and Tuesday because he has a weird schedule and I can make my own schedule! So on a Tuesday afternoon we found ourselves going to a 1:30 PM movie – La La Land! We got to the theater about an hour and a half early and headed over to the Whole Foods across the street… only to realize they had a bar!! This made us very happy because who doesn’t like a little buzz going into a movie… let’s just be honest. So we sat at the bar and I had a cocktail just like this one – filled with whiskey, carrot juice, lemon and honey! It was so mind blowingly good. So of course the next day I had to recreate it. I knew I probably couldn’t add straight honey in the drink so I made a honey simple syrup and it was perfection. Such a simple alternative to refined sugars! Also, I make it super simple by using boiling water with honey instead of doing it over the stovetop. Now that this cocktail is in my life I am wondering what other vegetable juices would work in a cocktail… and that I need to go find some sweet potato juice STAT.
But if you were wondering, we LOVED La La Land!! I don’t know if Matt would use caps on the love part but I swear he liked it too! I am such a sucker for any musical and this modern day + older/jazz music combo was incredible. When we lived in Long Beach we saw them filming a scene on a street by our house all day and were so excited to see that part. Only when we finally saw it, it was maybe 5 seconds of them driving down our alley!! Haha oh the movies! Okay now back to this cocktail which I know you need to get you through the rest of this week!
Also, did you know that I shared how I made these lemon twists on a cocktail post of a Sparkling Sidecar almost 4 years ago!!

My Doctor told me to eat as many dishes or smoothies with carrots for my eye problem. This recipe is perfect. Thank you so much for sharing.
This is very delicious! I modified it to have a scotch whiskey to give it a smokey taste and honey with habanero to give it a kick. It came out so well!!
