Happy Thanksgiving week, y’all!  I can’t believe we’re already here and just days away from the biggest food holiday of the year!  Woot!

I’m not completely organized yet.  We we have most (but not all) of our supplies.

I happened across some baby rainbow carrots at the grocery and nearly had a heart attack!  I can never find sexy versions of vegetables.  I’m not hating on the orange carrot or the purple beet, but it’s so much fun when you can find a variety of colors to jazz things up a bit!  I mean, purple carrots and yellow beets? That’s switching things up!

I bought every last little colorful carrot I could find.

And covered them in bourbon, brown sugar, and maple syrup then roasted them.

I’m glad I saved some to bourbon-ize and roast for our Thanksgiving holiday!  I highly recommend that you do it too!

  2. I am really digging all the bourbon that’s going on in this recipe. And maple syrup too? I’m sold. I could have that on top of anything! What a great idea for roasted carrots.

  3. These are the prettiest carrots! Love that you roasted them with bourbon, maple and brown sugar! They’re the perfect easy side dish! Hope you have a wonderful wonderful Thanksgiving! 🙂

    • Thanks, Kelly! They are totally easy and the pretty colors of the carrots make them look way more fancy pants than what they really are!

  4. Look at you Beer Girl!! Gettin’ all sophisticated up in here with these beautiful rainbow carrots. I need some sexy veggies on my holiday table so I’m putting them on my grocery list for tomorrow. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! 🙂

  5. What a fun recipe! I don’t think I’ve ever bought baby colored carrots…but now I have the urge to race to my local grocery store and look for them. Or do I actually just have the urge to race to my local liquor store and get bourbon? Hmmm…let’s go with both! What a fun side dish for the holidays!

  6. Uh… did someone say Bourbon? These have got to be the most beautiful carrots I’ve ever seen! Man, just looks at those colors! These would be absolutely stunning on a Thanksgiving table… or any table for that matter!

    • OMG! I thought rainbow carrots were a fiction like unicorns! But no! I found them at the end of my rainbow! P.S. Add bourbon and everything is better! 🙂
