On Monday I filled 185 plastic easter eggs with goodies.
On Tuesday I taped, glued and glittered eggs, bunnies and baskets with my girls.
On Wednesday I ran to the store to pick up the perfect shade of purple my daughter just had to have for her Easter basket.
On Thursday I moved the enormous Easter pinata located in my living room for the fifth time so I could clean.
On Friday as I grated carrots for cupcakes. I had planned to send with hubby for his co workers. I became a little frustrated.
I was a little Eastered out. I was over planning, over preparing and over stressing for a holiday that was a week away.
Honestly who would care if the eggs weren’t perfect, if the decorations were slightly runny from excess glue or if I even sent cupcakes?
I needed to relax. So I chucked all the carrots into my juicer and concoted this groovy Easter Margarita. Before the glass touched my lips I hesitated. It is kinda different, but I like different. Enjoy!
If you enjoy fresh carrot juice this is the drink for you. The fresh juice adds a refreshing backdrop to the lime juice.

Love Margaritas? Here’s more great recipes…
The only thing I would adjust would be trying Chili Con Limon on half the rim. Yumm!! Which would be good on most of the fruit & cucumber versions.
A little bit of everything says
I know how you felt. I used to plan everything, even the smallest detail. I gave up when i realized life is too short, I don’t need all that stress.
I love carrot juice and your margarita sounds like a great idea. Guess what? It’s 5 o’clock! Where’s my margarita?!?! LOL

Don’t laugh at me, but I have never tried carrot juice…this sounds so cool though, and so if I am going to try carrot juice this is the way I want it 🙂
Awesome! I love carrot juice. Add some liquor and I’m in nirvana. Great work on he garnish too.
Clever. Very clever. Wonder how ginger or cucumber would work with this.
I couldn’t help but laugh and feel that you may have a special kinship with my Mom. I’m sending her your post and your drink. She over-plans and loves margaritas ;o))
Ciao for now,
We love margaritas (hard not to while living in Mexico – ha!) and I’m going to have to make these… que rico!
Tara at Me and the Mexican says

What a great idea! I have to say, it sounds wonderful, and maybe some of those antioxidants will balance out the alcohol. 🙂

I love the idea of a carrot margarita! Lol…It makes the drink seem like essential nutrition.
Sounds like a refreshing cocktail, and I love the color! Hope you have a fun Easter.
My first thought was “you must be kidding”, and more I thought, more I thought that actually would be yummie, why not make your margarita healthy? I will definitely give this a try, maybe will relax me too 🙂 Have a great week!
No way! Too delicious and too pretty! I can;t believe you did it with carrots. So impressed right now! So impressed and a tad bitjealous!

You have been one busy lady! This margarita was definitely well deserved. I’ve never heard of a carrot margarita before…sounds different, but good! Hope this upcoming week is more relaxing for you 🙂
Wow. I like different too and will bookmark this for when I have cointreau in the house. Awesome.
Yum! I’d also like to taste the guava margarita. 😀
I love everything here. The color, the idea of a carrot margarita – but I especially love the decision to take some “me-time” and create for yourself.
I hope you savored that margarita 🙂
Sounds like you’re gonna have a fun Easter next week. Good luck with the rest of plans, maybe you relax with a chocolate martini next time 😉
Christine @ Fresh Local and Best says
This carrot margarita looks so refreshing! This is indeed quite a groovy Easter margarita.
I so remember those days of frazzled, hectic jungling of all to do for the holidays when my kids were younger! I wish I had that Margarita to take a moment and relax! What a creative idea, looks delicious and healthy!

Go you for doing something for YOURSELF. Sometimes we all need to remember to take a step back and just drink a margarita. A healthy margarita no less!
