Drinking With The Maggots – Carrot Ginger Mule

From Maggot Rachel:

  • 4 cups of freshly juiced carrot juice
  • 3cups of ginger beer, plus more for topping off glasses
  • 1 cup Tahoe Blue Vodka
  • 1/4 cup of fresh ginger juice
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed  lemon juice
  • Ice

Add the carrot juice, ginger beer, vodka, ginger juice and lemon juice to a large pitcher and stir to combine. Pour over ice filled glasses and top with more ginger beer. Serve immediately.

We only try 1 oz tasters during Drinking With The Maggots, so the following recipe is used for the on-air taste test:

  • 5 oz of Carrot Juice
  • 4 oz Ginger Beer
  • 2 oz of Tahoe Blue Vodka
  • 0.5 oz of ginger juice
  • 0.5 oz of fresh squeezed lemon juice.


Our resident bartender, Kyle, provides his twists on the drink as follows:

I would make the measurements for the carrot juice less and add more ginger beer.
5 oz Ginger Beer and only 3 oz of carrot juice.
I would also add more lemon juice to brighten up the drink.

Playing around with the carrot juice and Tahoe Blue Vodka inspired me to be creative. I actually made up a new drink entirely with this one.

I call It “Matt’s Carrot Cake Shooter”

  • 2oz Tahoe Blue Vodka
  • 0.5 oz of Tennessee fire or fireball
  • 2 oz of carrot juice
  • 2 oz heavy cream
  • 0.5 teaspoon of vanilla

Shake and strain in a small rocks glass over ice, then add a dash of cinnamon.
