Orange-Infused Vodka with Carrot Juice and Clover Blossoms

The natural choice of spirits for a light, vegetal cocktail is vodka. To brighten things up a skosh, I infused crisp Monopolowa vodka with thick swaths of orange zest, removed with a potato peeler (taking care to leave the bitter pith behind). Just pour enough vodka over the orange peel to cover, keep in an airtight jar for a couple days in a sunny window, and you're laughing. Any store-bought citrus vodka will work as a substitute.

Feel free to prep extra juice if you're serving brunch cocktails to a group.
