Introduction: Carrot Margarita

Picture of Carrot Margarita

That's right I said carrot margarita.  Have you ever worried about not getting enough vitamin K while getting smashed?  Do you enjoy getting smashed on tequila, but have had too many bad expereinces with it that you can no longer even stand the taste?  Do you just want to try something new?  Well then my friends this cocktail is for you!

Yes I know it's a little unusual, but the carrot juice is strong enough to overpower that tequila roughness, and the orange balanced out the the flavor of both other ingredients

Ingredients:
1 pound of raw carrots
2 ounces of Tequila
Juice of 1 orange
Kosher Salt
Ice

Start by juicing the carrots.  1 pound of raw carrots will give you about 6 ounces of carrot juice.  Once juiced, chill for an hour or so.

Take about 1/4 cup of the carrot fiber and add it to 1/4 cup of kosher salt.  Mix well and let sit while the juice is chilling.

After chilled, mix in the tequilla and the juice of one orange.

Spread the "carrot salt" on a flat surface, wet the rim of your glass and stick it into the salt.  Twist so that the salt sticks.  Then flip the glass over, add ice, then add the cocktail.  Enjoy!

This sounds insane! One more reason I need a juicer.
