The flavors of carrot cake inspire this refreshing carrot cocktail with ginger, maple, and orange. Made with vodka, triple sec, and a splash of cream, it's a perfect beverage to enjoy in the sun.
- 6 ounces carrot juice
- 2 ounces of your favorite vodka
- 2 ounces half and half or heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
- 1-ounce maple syrup
- 1-ounce triple sec
- 2 orange slices, cut into quarters
- 2 pieces of candied ginger (optional)
Fill a large shaker and two glasses with ice. If you don't have a large shaker, you could also use a large mason jar or divide the ingredients in half to make one serving at a time.
Add all but the orange and candied ginger to the shaker. Shake for 20 seconds, then divide between the glasses. Top with the orange pieces and ginger. Enjoy.
Customize this drink to your liking by adding in more ginger, maple, or cream.
It's easy to double or triple this recipe to make a large batch of servings in advance. Just keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
