I don't make New Year's resolutions, I make birthday resolutions. My birthday is 5 days after the new year so I wait and start the day/weekend/Monday after my birthday. This year I resolve to learn to take better pictures and add more veggies to my diet. The picture resolution I'm really hoping to keep, the veggie resolution we are starting right now - with a carrot martini. What better way to add veggies than through the drink of the week.
I found this recipe on the blog, daydreamerdesserts.com. What a wonderful way to start on my birthday resolution.
from Daydreamer Desserts
4 oz carrot puree (directions follow)
4 oz. orange infused vodka (directions follow)
Place ingredients in shaker with ice, shake until very cold, strain into glass.
16 oz. chopped carrot
6 oz. pineapple juice
Blend together in blender. Strain through cheesecloth
4 oz. vodka
combine in jar, let sit at room temp for 2 days. Shake once or twice each day.
(Really, use the whole orange and add 12 oz. vodka, you are going to want more than one of these.)
Here's to a happy, healthy year!
