Help me make carrot juice palatable

I just bought a big container of carrot juice thinking I'd like it. I was wrong. It *really* tastes like carrots, except it is unpleasantly sweet. Any tips on how to make it more drinkable? I'd prefer to keep it raw, since I bought it for the vitamins.

Thanks for your help!

    1. I don't care for carrot juice alone, but I think carrot/orange is okay, so maybe try mixing it with OJ?

      1. Add a little maple syrup or if you prefer savory - add to a V8.

        1. Or mix with apple juice, or some fresh ginger juice, or both.

          1. Just curious.... what brand of carrot juice did you buy?

                Odwalla is my favorite. I could drink that stuff down everyday, it's like liquid gold. Not sure how they do it. I think other brands, particulary the canned ones, taste a bit dirty to me, like the carrots weren't properly scrubbed.
