Carrot Juice Rum Cocktail

Refreshing Beverage of the Week
I got to wondering if I could use carrot juice to make cocktails, and look what the Internet turned up! They recommend making all the juices yourself but in a pinch, a good, high-quality, store-bought juice works just fine.

1/4 cup carrot juice
1/8 cup light rum
1 tablespoon fresh-squeezed lime juice
1/8 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup crushed ice

Pour all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Secure the lid and then shake like hell until your drink is consistent in color, and a little foamy. Pour it into a chilled very special cocktail glass and start feeling groovy. Garnish with a carrot stick or a pineapple spear.
