Fall brings the most vibrant and beautiful colors, doesn't it? The bright red, orange, and yellow leaves fill my soul with joy. I smile the whole Fall season. This Spicy Carrot Martini is inspired by the gorgeous hues of Fall, and I know you will love it as much as I do!

Carrot juice is the base of this martini. You can use fresh carrot juice if you would like. I went through a juicing phase a few years ago and my husband and I would buy the 20-pound bags of juicing carrots. Pure craziness, right? I juiced the carrots with apple and ginger, and the result was so delicious. Since then, my Hurom (juicer) has died, and I haven't replaced it, so I used a bottle version for this recipe.

The funny thing is that my whole family is looney over orange veggies. My son actually had a slightly orange tint (not jaundice) because he favored butternut squash, carrots, and pumpkin as a baby/toddler. Our pediatrician found it hilarious and laughed for quite a while. As a first time mom, I didn't think it was very humorous. I thought something was wrong with Logan. 

After the doctor visit, I had to put my foot down and force other color oriented veggies. His snack of choice now is still carrot sticks. I guess you like what you like.

I found the Three Chile Simple Syrup at Total Wine, and it has quickly become a favorite of mine. It is undoubtedly perfect for Fall cocktails.
