We had fun whipping up juice and cocktail recipes for spring. Our Ginger Carrot combo offers the sweetness of carrots with the kick of ginger, and mixologist Nicolene Schwartz dials it up with rye whiskey.

Check out our Strawberry Rose and Turmeric Lemongrass Lemonade juice and cocktail recipes from our new issue while you're at it. Enjoy!

For a cocktail… In a mixing tin or large glass filled with ice, combine 1½ cups carrot ginger juice, ¾ cup rye whiskey, and ⅓cup lime juice. Stir vigorously but quickly, just enough to blend ingredients (about 5 seconds). Pour into rocks glasses and garnish with a lime wedge. —Nicolene Schwartz
