Carrot French 75

The Carrot French 75 is the perfect Easter libation! This delightful twist on the classic French 75 cocktail brings together the vibrant flavors of fresh carrot juice, zesty lemon, and crisp champagne for a refreshing drink that’s perfect for Easter brunch.

The combination of gin, carrot juice, lemon juice, and simple syrup creates a tasty blend of flavors that perfectly complement the effervescence of champagne. Fresh carrot juice adds a vibrant, slight sweetness to the traditional French 75 recipe.

I used homemade simple syrup, but store bought works here as well. While I recommend fresh squeezed lemon juice and carrot juice, bottled can be substituted here too. Garnish with delicate carrot greens and this cocktail not only tastes amazing, but also looks Insta-worthy on your Easter table!

Ingredients for the Carrot French 75

  • Gin: Opt for a quality gin to impart a smooth and botanical flavor to the cocktail. I like Hendricks.
  • Carrot Juice: Freshly squeezed carrot juice adds a vibrant orange hue and earthy sweetness to the Carrot French 75.
  • Lemon Juice: The tangy acidity of lemon juice balances the sweetness of the carrot juice and simple syrup.
  • Simple Syrup: Homemade or store-bought simple syrup provides the perfect touch of sweetness to round out the flavors of the cocktail. Stirrings Pure Cane Simple Syrup is a good option.
  • Champagne: Choose your favorite champagne or sparkling wine to top off this cocktail with bubbles. I used Don Simon.
  • Fresh Carrot Greens: Fresh carrot greens add a pop of color as a garnish.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use vodka instead of gin in the Carrot French 75?

While gin is traditionally used in the classic French 75 cocktail, you can experiment with vodka if you prefer. Vodka has a more neutral flavor compared to gin, so the botanical notes may be less pronounced in the drink.

What can I substitute for champagne in the Carrot French 75?

If you don’t have champagne, you can substitute it with sparkling wine or prosecco for a similar bubbly effect. Alternatively, you can use sparkling water or soda water for a non-alcoholic version of the Carrot French 75.

Can I adjust the sweetness of the Carrot French 75?

Yes, if you prefer a sweeter cocktail, you can adjust the amount of simple syrup to suit your taste preferences. Start with the recommended amount and add more syrup as needed until you find the desired level of sweetness. If you prefer a drier cocktail, you can reduce the amount of simple syrup or omit it altogether.

How do I make simple syrup for the Carrot French 75?

Making simple syrup is easy and needs just two ingredients: equal parts water and granulated sugar. To make simple syrup, combine one cup of water and one cup of sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the sugar has completely dissolved, then remove the syrup from the heat and let it cool before using it in the cocktail. You can also make flavored simple syrups by adding ingredients like herbs, spices, or citrus zest during the heating process for an extra layer of flavor!

Can I use bottled carrot juice instead of freshly squeezed for the Carrot French 75?

While I recommend fresh carrot juice for the best flavor and color in the Carrot French 75, bottled carrot juice can be used as an alternative. Be sure to choose a high-quality, pure carrot juice with no added sugars or preservatives for the best results. If the bottled juice is particularly sweet, you may need to adjust the amount of simple syrup in the cocktail to balance the flavors.
