We’ll be passing small sips of this refreshing cold soup in shot glasses as guests enter the Governors Ball. You can make it easily by buying the bottled fresh organic carrot, apple, and orange juices you’ll find in the refrigerated section of many health-conscious markets today. Or, if you have a countertop electric juice extractor, make the juices just before serving and chill the mixture by shaking it with ice in a cocktail shaker.
- 2 cups fresh organic carrot juice
- ½ cup fresh organic apple juice
- ½ cup fresh organic orange juice
- Thin slices fresh carrot or apple, for garnish (optional)
Combine the juices in a nonreactive pitcher or jar. Cover and refrigerate for several hours, until well chilled.
Meanwhile, put 16 shot glasses, about 2 ounces each, on a tray. Chill in the freezer.
Just before serving, remove the pitcher or jar from the refrigerator and the glasses from the freezer. Briefly stir the juice and then pour about 1½ ounces into each shot glass. If you like, garnish with carrot or apple slices. Serve immediately.
Makes 16 (1 1/2-oz) shots.
