Magic Potion

This drink was...well...different. The carrot juice made it taste like carrot juice, which I suppose is fine if you like carrot juice. As for me, I found it just odd. It was a beautiful color though, especially for Fall / Thanksgiving. It reminded me of what butterbeer must look like.

30 ml maple creme liqueur
90 ml milk
30 ml dark run
60 ml carrot juice
cinnamon stick for garnish (optional)

you'll also need:
drink shaker with ice in it (and ice strainer)

1. mix the maple creme liqueur and milk in the shaker, shaking for 15 to 20 seconds. A rich froth should develop. Pour it into a highball glass through the ice strainer.
2. mix the rum and carrot juice in the shaker, shaking for 8 to 10 seconds to blend. Carefully pour it into the center of the drink already in the glass. It will turn a pretty color.
3. add a cinnamon stick for garnish. If you really really think you need more vegetables in your diet, this is for you!

I got this recipe from the  SAQ website Espace Cocktail.

  1. It DOES look like butterbeer. I like carrot juice so I am sure I would like this one.
