Ok, so I know I have a problem coming up with good cocktail names. But regardless of the name, this was delicious.
2 oz. Carrot Vodka
1/2 oz. Dry Vermouth
Place Carrot Vodka, dry vermouth, and about 1/2 Tablespoon chopped crystalized ginger in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously. Place approximately 1/2 teaspoon of chopped crystalized ginger in the bottom of a chilled martini glass. Strain the liquids into the glass and garnish with more ginger, or a slice of carrot.
The sweetness of the carrots come out nicely in this drink. We thought fresh ginger would overpower the gentle carrot flavor, so opted for crystalized ginger which also lends a bit more sweetness.
There will be many more uses for this carrot goodness…
