There are endless ways to get creative with your Imperfect box. We love juicing and smoothies, but we're happy to share that legal adults have even more ways to drink their produce on evenings and weekends! We tapped our resident mixologist, Hailey Hosler (@heartandhoneybartending) to create a veggie-forward cocktail with her weekly produce delivery. This simple and delicious drink features Imperfect carrots and lemons and is sure to add a punch of color to your next meal. Just make sure that neither you nor the produce ends up wasted. Cheers!

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 oz vodka
  • 2 oz fresh carrot juice
  • .75 oz fresh lemon juice
  • .5 oz agave syrup

Instructions:

  • Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice
  • Shake well
  • Strain into a Coupe glass
  • Garnish with a fresh lemon
  • Enjoy!

Recipe Variations:

Carrots pair really well with the spicy-sweet flavor of Habanero peppers. So, if you're feeling adventurous try using Habanero infused vodka and garnishing with a slice of fresh Habanero. Just be careful to not add too much or your cocktail will be so hot that you and Bruno Mars will be calling the police and the fireman. Carrots also pair beautifully with ginger so some ginger-infused simple syrup or freshly juiced ginger would be a great addition too!
