Carrots are a year-round staple in the produce department, but they’re at their best right now, when cooler weather and early autumn frosts make them a touch sweeter. They’re ripe and ready for your cocktail glass—yep, you read that right.

This vibrant orange tipple, developed by Well+Good’s resident cocktail expert, The Outside Institute founder, Laura Silverman, combines the best of two worlds: the juice bar and the cocktail bar.

The “Bunny Hop” cocktail calls for a colorful base of fresh carrot juice. “The bright orange color alludes to all that beta carotene,” says Silverman. “It’s a crucial antioxidant for improving immunity in the body, protecting skin and eye health, and fighting free radicals.” If you have fresh carrots, run them through your juicer. Otherwise, store-bought carrot juice works just fine here as well.

The almond flavor in amaretto is actually a fitting flavor. Think how many times you see carrot and almond paired together on a restaurant menu. And the hearty dose of rye whiskey? Well, that’s just for fun.

Scroll down to get the recipe for this carrot-based cocktail.
