Start the week with a kick of flavor; created by Chilled 100 bartender Chris Patino, the Carrot King is a dynamic and flavorful drink that will start your week right.

The blend of Reposado tequila and Madeira create a dynamic base that holds up to the flavors of carrot, ginger, and hot sauce. This drink has been a hit at Morning Glory in San Diego and pairs perfectly with a wide range of brunch favorites.
