Down the Rabbit Hole...

061 This is as close as I come to an Easter theme drink and it was all precipitated by the fact that I bought carrot juice in an effort to have a healthier drink option. I got to wondering, what else can be done with carrot juice, more specifically, how can it be mixed as a cocktail, thus defeating the initial healthful purpose. Ok confession, I also bought the carrot juice because my eyes have been getting wiped out/ bleary from staring at a computer all day and in my random/ crazy mind, drinking carrot juice would counteract this.  Reality... I probably need glasses.
Any who, ingredients and recipe after the jump...
064 Ingredients:
  • 1 ounce gin
  • 3 ounces carrot juice
  • 1 ounce lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary simple syrup
  • dash of Peychaud's bitters
  • rosemary sprig for garnish
  1. To make the rosemary simple syrup: In a small saucepan, heat up 1 1/2 cups water, 1/2 cup sugar until sugar dissolves completely.  Throw in several sprigs of rosemary (3-4) and simmer for 5 minutes. Turn off heat and let steep for several hours. 
  2. To make Down the Rabbit Hole: Mix gin, carrot juice, lemon juice, rosemary simple syrup, and peychaud's bitters in cocktail shaker with ice.
  3. Strain into glass.
  4. Garnish with rosemary skewer. Enjoy!
