Out of a Hat [Cocktail Recipe]

“The earthy sweetness of the carrot juice plays beautifully with Wicked White Whiskey, which has an almost sweet, more complex nose than others that I had been experimenting with,” says Ali Koppel, resort mixologist at Crystal Springs Resort in Hamburg, New Jersey. “I found it very fun to mix with, here adding the pickled flavor of a dill syrup I created.”


  • 2 oz. Wicked White Whiskey (or other white corn whiskey)
  • 1 oz. carrot juice
  • ½ oz. lemon juice
  • ½ oz. orange juice
  • ½ oz. dill syrup (recipe below)
  • Garnish: dill sprig


Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake. Double strain into a coupe glass and garnish with dill sprig.

To make dill syrup:

Place 2 cups of sugar in a mixing container. Stir in 1 cup of hot water and add one bunch of dill. Steep for 1 hour. Strain. Keep refrigerated.
