Vodka provides perfect a base for carrot, ginger and orgeat in this cocktail from Mister O’s in Los Angeles.
1 oz. vodka
½ oz. yellow Chartreuse
¾ oz. fresh lemon juice
¼ oz. ginger syrup
¼ oz. orgeat
1 oz. star anise-carrot juice
2 dashes orange bitters
Tools: strainer, fine strainer
Garnish: lemon peel, oregano sprig
Add all the ingredients to a shaker with ice and shake to chill. Double strain into a coupe and garnish.
Star Anise-Carrot Juice: Add 3 star anise pods to a pint of fresh carrot juice. Bring mixture to a boil briefly so the flavors incorporate, then remove from heat and let cool. Strain and store in the refrigerator.
