Fresh carrot juice and ginger lend vibrant color and warm flavour to this innovative martini cocktail.
For the Ginger Simple Syrup, place ginger in center of a piece of cheesecloth. Tie tightly with long piece of string. Place ginger sachet, water and sugar in small saucepan on medium heat. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer for 3 minutes, stirring to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat. Cool slightly. Refrigerate overnight to blend flavour. Remove sachet. Store spiced syrup, covered, in the refrigerator. (Makes 225ml)
Fill cocktail shaker two-thirds full with ice. Add carrot juice, vodka, Ginger Simple Syrup and orange-flavoured liqueur; shake until well mixed and chilled. Strain into martini glass. Garnish with shaved carrot, if desired. Serve immediately.
Makes 1 serving.
Test Kitchen Tip: Leftover Ginger Simple Syrup can be used to sweeten iced tea or lemonade.
