Two Sundays ago, Andrea and I made our way over to Trina's Starlite Lounge for dinner. For a drink, my curiosity got the better of me and I ordered an intriguing carrot-juice Sour from the menu. The drink, the Left Turn at Alburquerque, is a homage to a recurrent joke on the Bugs Bunny; and if you have ever been to Monday brunch at Trina's, you know that they take their cartoons seriously. Moreover, bartender Emma Hollander seemed quite pleased that I was ordering this drink.

The Left Turn at Alburquerque had a nice froth from the shaken carrot juice and egg white. For an aroma, there was a funky grape from the pisco, a bright citrus from the lemon, and a vegetal element from the carrot. The egg lent a creaminess and rounded off the carrot and citrus wine flavors in the sip, and the lemon continued on into the swallow where it joined the pisco.
