The Twelve Drinks of Christmas – Kampai

so cranky  proposed it

welcome to T12DoC

I could swear that some time ago noted cocktail connoisseur Steve Betz posted a recipe for a cocktail that included carrot juice.  I think he called it “Zanahorita”.   …but I can’t find his recipe…dang

internets to the rescue!

this is my not-as-good-as-Steve-Betz’s-obviously Zanahorita   (adapted and modified from what I found in the internets)

add to cocktail shaker:

2 jiggers tequila
½-jigger triple sec
2 jiggers carrot juice
½-jigger lime juice

shake shake shake.


it's good for ya! vegetables!

  3. A cocktail I can drink and still tell everyone that it’s for my health, ha! And I do love the orange color, carrot or no.

    Tequila is an okay mixer, but I can never drink it straight up without feeling sick afterwards. I’ve sometimes used white rum as a substitute, but it doesn’t have that “kick” to it.

    • thanks for the link, Steve. it’s been bookmarked.
      I’ll be sure to try it out next time I go carroty during the cocktail hour. and I won’t forget the cumin, I promise.
