CZOJ: Patterson House, Pimp My Carrot Juice

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?
