Some­thing spe­cial to drink

The Insider's Guide to New Zealand - - NORTH ISLAND -

The car­rot juice in Ohakune is quite pos­si­bly the sweet­est in the world. Al­most every café has a ver­sion on its menu.

Utopia Café serves it straight in a tall glass, as cold as the snow on Mt Ruapehu’s slopes. Lo­cal woman Jor­dan Ver­saggi likes to add ap­ples, or­anges, lots of ginger and a dash of lemon. She calls it a “su­per juice”. Car­rots are packed with healthy vi­ta­mins and min­er­als. They are said to con­trol dis­ease, lower choles­terol, pro­mote bone growth and help you see in the dark. Best of all, say lo­cals, car­rot juice is a great cure for a hang­over.
