Okay, so I’m late with this post. I’ve been working on a pear-based cocktail, and it’s just not working out. So, I’m going to post this one instead. It’s an old favorite that I used to make at a bar in St Louis I managed, and one friend liked it so much, she asked me to make a pitcher of them for her bridal shower! Honestly, this is one of my best recipes. It is called The Curiously Classy Carrot, and it is classy, curious, and carroty!

It uses Galliano, which is one of my all-time favorite liqueurs. It’s so herby and fantastic, and the bright yellow of it is as vibrant as a sunny day! Carrot juice tempers the herbiness of the Galliano nicely, and the vanilla vodka provides a fantastic base.
Start by filling a shaker or pint glass with ice. Next, juice a single large carrot, or two smaller ones. If you don’t have a juicer, you can get the juice here. Add the juice to the ice, and then add 2 oz vanilla vodka and 1 oz Galliano. Shake or stir (this is one of the few instances where I actually do recommend shaking), and then strain into a cocktail glass.
