Carrot Bloody Maria

Carrot Bloody MariaIt's bloody mary time again! This time it's actually a bloody maria, which means you use tequila instead of vodka. I LOVE carrot juice, so I was so excited to give this recipe a try!Numi savory teas are amazing!For this cocktail, we teamed up with the fine folks at Numi Organic Tea. We used one of their savory teas to infuse our tequila. I know what you're thinking… "tea infused liquor? And wait, SAVORY tea?" Trust me. We used their Carrot Curry tea, and it was SO good and really easy to do. Here's how:How to infuse liquor with teaTo infuse liquor with tea, just fill a glass container with liquor in the amount that you need for your recipe. One tea bag is enough for up to 8 ounces of liquor. Seal your container with an airtight lid and store it in a dark area.Infusing tequila with carrot flavored tea Allow it to infuse for 48-72 hours before removing the tea bag.How to make a bloody maria (so yummy!)Carrot Bloody Maria, serves one

  • Isn’t a savory tea pretty much broth using a steepable tea bag instead of bullion cubes or granules? Sounds good to me.

  • Yum, this looks so good, thank you so much for including such great “how to” instructions,

  • Hi, this is a great post. I wondered if you would like to link it in to the new Food on Friday which is running right now over at Carole’s Chatter. We are collecting recipes using carrots and/or leeks. This is the link . I hope you pop over to check it out. There are lots of great recipes already linked in.

  • I’m so impressed that you guys figured out a delicious way to use those savory teas! We had some in the office and tried straight…I bet it’s way better infused into booze (it was a little too “watery bouillon” straight-up for my personal taste). Can’t wait to try this!

  • This looks amazing… I wanna try this!

    Please check out and follow my blog! I’d really appreciate it! http://seasidebeauty.blogspot.co.uk/

  • That sounds delicious and refreshing! I love a spicy bloody Mary – bland ones are the worst. Have you ever tried fixing one with Clamato? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clamato

    It’s awesomely funky.

  • You’re officially my favourite blog. I love you guys!! Bloody marys are my life.

  • Yum! Looks delicious! Have you tried using clamato juice? Ceasars (with clamato instead of tomato juice) are a popular drink here in Canada and they are so yummy.

  • Looks delicious

  • Savory Tea?! Dreams really do come true! Thanks for posting a creative way to use it, too! 🙂

  • I am thinking about all the things I can infuse liquor with now.

  • this looks so good. but what is a savory tea? i’ve never heard of those before.

  • I have never heard of savoury tea before…is it tasty on it’s own? Can’t really get my head around that part of it yet but the cocktail sounds lovely!

  • This seems insanely original! I’ll def have to try this one day! 🙂

  • Looks delicious ! I am definitely going to try it ! Thanks for this great idea !
