After downing 138 ounces of fresh carrot-beet-ginger-lemon juice, a girl starts to think of ways to mix things up a little. After all, the Carrot Zinger Orangification Journey (i.e. my quest to drink enough of Fresh Blends' so-called Carrot Zingers to turn myself orange) does not preclude other beverages, such as, say, gin.
So I called upon the team at The Patterson House to see what they would do to goose the wholesome medley. (These guys made a cocktail of bacon, for crissakes--surely they can pimp some carrot juice with a little hooch.)
Indeed the 100-proof team at the speakeasy on Division Street responded with this formula:
2 oz. light rum
1 oz. carrot juice
1 oz. ginger syrup
1 oz. lime juice
1 oz. beet juice
I haven't tried it yet--I'm saving it for my weekend CZ dose--but I'm pretty sure it needs a sassy name to finish it off. And possibly some bacon.
What can we call this beverage?
