Jack Jazz Rabbit
Adapted from a recipe by Marek Vojčarčik, U.N.C.L.E., Bangkok, Thailiand
“I think that many people will enjoy my Jack Jazz Rabbit, especially in summer time. [The] recipe is twist on my grandmother’s salad which she used to serve me during my childhood at late afternoons 🙂 It brings me always nice memories. The name comes from an old PC game where the hero is really crazy Rabbit who always messes around and collects carrots. [The flavor] is very fruity, natural and it’s a combination of healthy ingredients that will maybe very interesting for many people :-). The cocktail was first prepared for Bar Amazement Competition by Stan Vadrna and was served for more than half a year in Bratislava,” Marek Vojcarcik
1/4 granny smith apple, cut into small cubes
20ml (.6 oz) fresh lemon juice
20ml (.6 oz) gomme sirop
80ml (2.4 oz) fresh carrot juice
40ml (1.3 oz) Zubrowka or Smirnoff apple vodka
Fresh carrot sticks(rabbit ears) and apple fan, as garnishes
Muddle the apple in a mixing glass, add ice and the rest of the ingredients, and shake well. Strain into an ice-filled collins glass, and add the garnishes.
gaz sez: If you know my taste in cocktails you’ll no doubt be aware that this is not they style of drink I usually favor, but this recipe pretty much intrigued me so I had to give it a chance. Guess what? It’s fabulous. And it’s so unlike the vast majority of recipes that usually cross my desk, so I just had to choose it as one of this year’s winners. There’s chance I’ll be in Bangkok next year, and if that comes true, I’ll go pay Marek a visit for sure.
