Carrot Ginger Artet Fizz
Playfully spritzy, the Carrot Ginger Artet Fizz is incredibly refreshing, yet tastes therapeutic due to the combination of ginger, carrot, and freshly-squeezed lemon juice. To create the finest froth, make sure to dry shake first (without ice), then shake again with ice to chill the liquid down before serving. Top with club soda and watch the foam rise on top of a glowing orange hue. Garnish with a carrot ribbon and spring flowers, then enjoy!

How to Make Carrot Ginger Shrubs
Equipment: Blender or food processor Bowl or Tupperware Fine-mesh strainer Spoon Mason Jar
Ingredients: 2 pounds fresh carrots 2 tablespoons grated ginger 1 cup honey white balsamic vinegar (or apple cider vinegar) ½ cup sugar
Directions: Puree the carrots in a blender or food processor. Empty the pureed carrots into a Tupperware or bowl, then add the grated ginger. Stir well to combine. Slowly pour in the vinegar of your choice while stirring, then cover the Tupperware or bowl with a lid or saran wrap and let the mixture soak for 48 hours in the refrigerator. After the carrot ginger blend is done soaking, use a fine-mesh strainer to separate the liquids from the solids over a clean bowl. Use the back of a spoon to press the carrots and ginger to extract as much liquid as possible. Pour the carrot ginger vinegar into a Mason jar, then add the sugar. Seal the Mason jar with a lid and shake vigorously to combine. Let the Carrot Ginger Shrub rest for 24 hours, then shake well before serving.
