Blossom Scented Orange & Carrot Appetiser

On the eve of King’s day, my contribution to the orange-coloured frenzy comes in the form of this little orange-scented, orange-flavoured appetiser. The combination of orange juice, finely grated carrot and subtly scented orange blossom water makes for a refreshing start to your evening meal, but would also make a great post-party breakfast shot. Depending on the mood, serve in shot glasses, cocktail glasses, little Moroccan tea glasses or tea cups, and eat with a little spoon.


Ingredients (for 4 small shot glasses or 2 slightly bigger glasses)

1 medium carrot, very finely grated

juice of 1/2 to 1 orange

a few drops of orange blossom water


  • Grate the carrot very finely and divide into glasses or put it in a sealable container if you want to make it ahead of time.


  • Press the orange juice and pour it onto the grated carrot until just submerged
  • Add a few drops of orange blossom water to taste and eat with a little spoon.

  1. Prachtige foto’s en weer een heerlijk simpele én verrassende combinatie. Voor mij wel geschikt als pre-party post-verkoudheid drankje vandaag!
