carrot margarita recipe with lime and salt

This Carrot Margarita recipe was inspired by the cocktail served at Flora Farm in Cabo San Lucas. Our first thought is that there is no way a margarita made with carrot juice can taste good…can’t happen.

However, we were 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 you’re sipping, your body is rejoicing with all of the beta-carotene. If this is how you have to get your weekly carrot juice, then so be it!

At 60%, Margarita is the most popular drink in the U.S. But not everyone understands the rich history behind the margarita.

A Brief Margarita History 

Margarita history starts with Margaret Sames. In 1948, she invited some guests over for a cocktail party and decided to experiment with some alcohol. She mixed Cointreau and tequila with a bit of lime and salt around the edge of the glass. That’s who invited the Margarita.

What is a Margarita?

Now that you know the history of Margaritas, you might wonder what’s in a Margarita. Are there different recipes? 

There are actually quite a few recipes. But the original recipe calls for Tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice, and a bit of soda. There’s also some salt on the brim of the glass. 

Since it’s inception, Margaritas have evolved to include variations of liqueur, Tequila, as well as other options.

How To Make A Carrot Margarita

  • 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.

Our carrot margarita is a vibrantly colored cocktail! The carrot juice mixes well with the citrus of the orange and the lime juice. The jalapeno tequila is the special sauce in this recipe, providing a lovely touch of heat!

The Perfect Easter Brunch Cocktail

If you’re hosting Easter brunch, this is a unique and very charming cocktail to serve.

For a long, long time Bloody Mary’s and Mimosas (check out our carrot and blood orange mimosa!) have held the top spot for brunch cocktails. But this is a new contender!

With its zesty flavors and refreshing carrot kick, this is a great alternative to the classics.

A Healthy Cocktail

Ok, so not pretending this should replace your protein shakes and such BUT it is packed with beta-carotene from the carrot juice. Beta carotene is good for your eyes, skin and immune system. So this is healthy…ish!

Tips For Carrot Margarita

  • If you have a juicer at home, make fresh carrot juice.
  • Shake the mixture in a cocktail shaker with ice, until the shaker is ice cold, that’s when you know the drink is mixed.
  • To rim the glasses, put salt on a small plate or saucer, turn the glasses upside down and twist in the salt. Make sure the rims of the glasses are damp.
  • Serve with a slice of lime.
