You know the expression, to "drink yourself blind"? Well now you can try to drink yourself into a lighter pair of eyeglasses with carrot cocktails.
- I wrote a little while ago about the Carrot Cake cocktail at Fish & Farm, made with roasted carrot vodka, cake-spice brandy, and cream.
- In Bridget Albert's book Market-Fresh Mixology: Cocktails for Every Season, she lists a recipe for the Carrot Chic, made with carrot juice, sour mix, orange vodka, and triple sec, with a sugar-ginger rim. (This picture is from the book.)
- For a one-off event last week, Citizen Cake in San Francisco offered a drink called the PC, made with English pea and mint juice, light rum, orange bitters, and baby carrot ice cubes.
Remember, every night out drinking should come with a healthy serving of vegetables.
