Imagine a Bloody Mary hopped up on carrots—because that’s exactly what this is! We’ve swapped the tomato juice for carrot juice, making this drink as vibrant as Bugs Bunny after his morning coffee. Here’s how to whip up this refreshingly Bunny concoction:

For your shopping list 

  • Carrot juice (freshly squeezed for that extra hop in your step)
  • Vodka (because it’s always 5 o’clock somewhere)
  • Lemon juice (to keep things zesty)
  • Hot sauce (for a kick, like a rabbit’s thump)
  • Worcestershire sauce (try saying that three times fast)
  • Salt and pepper (just a pinch, like a bunny’s nose twitch)


  • A carrot, obviously. Bugs would approve.

Is it better than the Bloody Mary? Well, if you’re lounging in the summer sun, this carrot concoction is a bit fresher, a tad sweeter, and undeniably more hare-raising. But hey, taste is subjective, so hop to it and decide for yourself!

Here’s the recipe again, just in case you missed a hop:

  • Ingredients
    • 1 ½ oz (45 ml) vodka
    • 3 oz (90 ml) carrot juice
    • ½ oz (15 ml) lemon juice, freshly squeezed
    • ½ oz (15 ml) orange juice, freshly squeezed
    • 2 dashes hot sauce (like Tabasco)
    • 2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
    • 1 pinch celery salt
    • 1 pinch ground black pepper
    • 1 pinch smoked paprika
    • 1 pinch ground coriander
    • Ice cubes
    • Carrot stick, celery stick, or cucumber spear for garnish



HOP HOP here are the instructions 

  1. Prepare the Glass: Rim a highball or pint glass with a lemon or lime wedge, then dip it in celery salt or smoked paprika to coat the rim (optional).
  2. Mix the Ingredients: In a shaker or mixing glass, combine the vodka, carrot juice, lemon juice, orange juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, celery salt, black pepper, smoked paprika, and ground cumin (if using).
  3. Shake or Stir: Add ice cubes to the shaker and shake vigorously for about 10-15 seconds, or if using a mixing glass, stir well to combine.
  4. Strain and Serve: Fill the prepared glass with ice cubes and strain the cocktail mixture into the glass.
  5. Garnish: Garnish with a carrot stick, celery stick, or cucumber spear and a lemon or lime wedge.
  6. Serve Immediately: Serve your Bunny Mary immediately and enjoy!

This cocktail is a refreshing and healthy alternative to the traditional Bloody Mary, perfect for brunch or a light afternoon drink.
