Ginger Carrot Juice & Cocktail

We had fun whipping up juice and cocktail recipes for spring. Our Ginger Carrot combo offers the sweetness of carrots with the kick of ginger, and mixologist Nicolene Schwartz dials it up with rye whiskey.


For the juice (serves 2):

Push ginger and carrots through juicer and into a serving pitcher. Enjoy immediately. —Sarah Lagrotteria

For a cocktail:

In a mixing tin or large glass filled with ice, combine carrot ginger jucie, rye whiskey, and lime juice. Stir vigorously but quickly, just enough to blend ingredients (about 5 seconds). Pour into rocks glasses and garnish with a lime wedge. —Nicolene Schwartz
