Fresh Beet, Citrus & Ginger Cocktail by The Year in Food

9 ounces Hangar 1 Straight Vodka 3-5 medium beets, scrubbed and quartered 6 limes, supremed and halved 3 oranges, supremed and quartered 6 ounces ginger simple syrup Dash of preferred bitters Sparkling water Crushed ice

PREPARATION:

First, make the ginger simple syrup. Combine the ingredients in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil, covered, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 1/2 hour. Strain the contents and set the simple syrup aside to cool. (Place it in the fridge to speed the process up.)

Run the beets through your juicer until you have 6 ounces of beet juice. Run limes and oranges through. Pour the citrus juices into a tall pitcher. Add ingredients and a few generous dashes of your favorite bitters. Stir.

Add a small handful of crushed ice to each of 6 glasses. Fill the glasses about halfway with the cocktail mix, and top with a few ounces of sparkling water. Enjoy!

Simple syrup ingredients:
1 cup coarsely chopped, fresh ginger
1 cup water
