Brighten up winter happy hour or Sunday brunch with this citrusy cocktail. Leafy carrot tops lend an herby backbone similar to parsley, and blood oranges infuse a berrylike sweetness. Plus, this drink boasts half your daily vitamin A and more than a third of your daily vitamin C goal.

How to Make It

Muddle 2 teaspoons carrot top leaves and 1 blood orange rind strip in a cocktail shaker using the handle of a wooden spoon. Add 100% carrot juice, fresh blood orange juice, fresh lime juice, vodka, triple sec, and a handful of ice cubes to shaker; shake well for 15 seconds. Pour mixture through strainer into 2 ice-filled glasses. Garnish with a blood orange slice and carrot top leaves, if desired.
