Carrot Margarita Recipe

Comments

CarrotMargarita_1CarrotMargarita2CarrotMargarita3This Carrot Margarita recipe was inspired by the cocktail served at Flora Farm in Cabo San Lucas. I thought there is no way a margarita made with carrot juice can taste good…can’t happen. But I was shocked at how refreshing and delicious a carrot margarita is! The unique combination of carrot juice, lime, orange and jalapeño tequila blend very well together. It’s also nice to know that as I’m sipping this, my body is rejoicing with all of the beta-carotene. If this is how I have to get my carrot juice for the week, then so be it. I must say, it’s one charming cocktail for Easter brunch!

Carrot Margarita Recipe
4 ounces fresh carrot juice
2 ounces Jalapeño Tequila (we used Tanteo)
1/2 ounce Grand Marnier
1 ounce fresh juice from a lime
1/2 ounce fresh juice from an orange

Directions
If you have a juicer at home, make fresh carrot juice. If not, you can buy fresh-squeezed carrot juice from Whole Foods or a local grocery store.
Add all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake until combined.
Salt the rim of a glass and add one large ice cube.
Strain the cocktail over the ice. Serve with lime if you desire.

    This is an amazing idea! We have a lilac margarita and I feel like I want to search the web for all sorts of amazing margarita alternatives now. I can’t WAIT to try this one out, esp since I have been juicing carrots on nearly a daily basis.
