Gin Carrot Cocktail
Gin and carrot juice get a lift from an unexpected ingredient in this cocktail - Jagermeister.
Traditionally associated with Red Bull shooters, a little Jager in the mix can actually lend complexity to a cocktail. Like most herbal liqueurs, the exact blend of botanicals and spices that go into Jagermeister is a secret but we have it on good authority that apart from the usual suspects, it includes lavender!
Rounding things up, we used the sea-inspired Manly Spirits Distillery Co gin, with its slight savoury notes matching well with the carrot and Jager. BIt of ginger and lemon later, this is a salad worth having.
60ml Manly Spirits Distillery Co gin
90ml carrot juice
15ml ginger syrup (we used the one from the Ginger People, which you can buy from specialist grocers)
5ml lemon juice
Few drops Addiction Mixology foam drops (or use one egg white)
Shake everything without ice. Add ice and shake well especially if using egg white. Strain into glass.
