  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) fresh carrot juice from about 2 large carrots
  • 1 teaspoon fresh garlic juice from 2 cloves garlic
  • 3/4 cup (6 ounces) fresh red bell pepper juice from about 1 very large or 2 medium-sized red bell peppers

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated horseradish root
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for rimming glasses
  • Lemon wedges, for serving (optional)


  1. 1.

    Rim two juice glasses with salt: fill 1 saucer with water and sprinkle 1 saucer with kosher salt. Dip glasses into water then immediately into salt, turning glasses in salt to coat rims evenly.

  2. 2.

    Stir juices together, add horseradish and salt, and stir thoroughly. Divide between two glasses, garnish with lemon wedges, if desired, and serve immediately.
