It’s January 6th and chances are you are one of millions of people already struggling to stick with your New Year’s resolutions. And the chances are even more likely that one of those resolutions is to eat healthier/not drink. Good luck with that by the way – in two weeks you’ll be back on the couch with one hand in a bag of kettle corn while simultaneously slurping down your PBR (we get trying to ease back into it, and we, too, love a good PBR) . Well, since the aforementioned is bound to happen sooner or later, the least you can do is drink healthier. Which is why we did some in-depth research (and by research we mean cocktail mixing and drink tasting) and discovered the Alpine Rabbit. A mix of bourbon, carrot and lemon juice, walnut liqueur, and syrup, the Alpine Rabbit tastes like carrot cake in a cup and is way more satisfying on the taste buds than a green smoothie. So kick your “health binge” off the right way tonight with an Alpine Rabbit (and feel free to chase it with another glass of bourbon if carrot juice isn’t your thing).
1 ½ oz. Lost Republic bourbon
¾ oz. carrot juice
½ oz. lemon juice
½ oz. walnut liqueur
½ oz. Demerara simple syrup
Pinch of fleur de sel
Strip of orange zest for garnish
Combine all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Strain the mixture into a rocks glass and garnish with a strip of orange zest. Cheers Pioneers!
