The Drop

The Drop is your source for all things craft.

Everybody knows that carrots = spring on a plate. But would you ever think to use carrots in a cocktail? 

Carrot juice is the secret ingredient in this lovely spring punch, which also combines our Standard Dry Gin, pineapple, lemon and ginger beer. It's clever for Easter of course, but its bright and lightly fizzy flavor makes it a sure thing all spring long. It's not too sweet.

This punch checks all the boxes for a spring cocktail for a crowd — a gorgeous color, an unexpected ingredient and easy preparation. Hop to it.
