Orange Parrot


Orange Parrot

Shake with ice and strain into glass. Garnish with lime.

I was making my wife and kids some non-alcoholic drinks using some carrot juice (different combinations and ratios of lemon juice, cinnamon syrup, ginger ale, orange bitters) and the carrot juice gave such a beautiful color. I wanted an alcoholic cocktail version.

The Chesuncook spirit is carrot-based, so that was the natural choice. The turmeric liqueur seemed a perfect complement for carrots. The ginger liqueur and cinnamon syrup added some spice and sugar, and the lime gave a bright acid. A cocktail needs bitters, so I reached for Abbot’s.

The name comes from the joke, “What’s orange and sounds like a parrot?”

I didn’t say it was a good joke.
