My second batch of beet-infused vodka is strained and ready for consumption. I’ll be honest, I made twice as much as last time. And last time I gifted nearly the entire haul.
In our house of three, I’m the only one who drinks.
So if you come to visit anytime soon, please ask for a beverage.
From Lucy Brennan’s Hip Sips
3 oz beet-infused vodka
.5 oz lemon-lime juice
.5 oz simple syrup
Shake and serve over ice. (I believe Lucy calls for straining.)
I made a round of drinks for friends last night to test the vodka on someone less attached to the result. Their feedback was that it was very beet-y in both aroma and flavor. A discussion about dirt vs. soil followed. Then we briefly touched on the potential health benefits, you know, because of the beets.
You draw your own conclusions. I will say, though, that everyone finished their drink.
