Would ever drink a cocktail made with carrot juice?
Carrots are a sneaky ingredient for cocktails, they have a full flavor, sweet, hard to tame, so what else if not coconut milk can we add to enrich and at the same time break their monotonous flavor?
And what spirit can we pair with this sweet and milky base? Of course rum, because of its spicy sweetness.
What is missing? A lively touch, and then add a splash of triple sec and the cocktail begins to take shape with a hint of citrus.
Something is still missing… a flicker, a ray of sunlight, otherwise, this cocktail could be too monolithic and so let’s sprinkle some nutmeg, for making it more virile.
The result is a full-bodied and velvety cocktail, but not too much alcoholic, excellent as an aperitif, though it would be cataloged as a fortifying drink in Bloody Mary style.
Code name of this beauty: Psycho Carrot Deluxe, you know, carrot in the new black…
If you do not like coconut milk, replaced it with cream and a drop of coconut rum and life goes on the same.
Ingredients for making the Psycho Carrot Deluxe cocktail
- 4 cl of dark rum
- 1 cl of triple sec
- 3 carrots or 6 cl of carrot juice
- 1 cl of coconut milk
- a sprinkling of nutmeg
How to make the Psycho Carrot Deluxe cocktail
Let’s centrifuge a couple of carrots or uncork an excellent bottle of carrot juice, we want only the best for our aperitif.
Fill your shaker with ice, pour rum, carrot juice, coconut milk, triple sec and a sprinkle of nutmeg.
Shake vigorously until you have ruddy cheeks, then pour into a tall glass filled with ice.
If the coconut milk was too solid, stir with a spoon until it becomes a cream again.
