3 BEET HIGH & RISING from the One-Bottle Cocktail

Published by Ten Speed Press, an imprint of Penguin Random House." Photography copyright: Kelly Puleio © 2018 --------- I love fancy Italian vermouths like Carpano Antica Formula for the velvety texture and complex flavor they add to cocktails. But this drink offers similar rich bass notes and a touch of earthy sweetness thanks to an unexpected combination-beet juice and a few drops of vanilla extract. Created by Chris Morris of Ready Room in Houston, this fizzy, shaken aperitif doesn't end up tasting vegetal or particularly savory. Instead, the beets deepen the berry flavor (and hue) of the mix of pomegranate soda, lemon juice, and gin. You certainly can juice your own beets for this, but it also works wonderfully with a high-quality bottled juice like Love Beets. Since it's not served over ice, it's really worth chilling the glass to help this drink stay cool.

Ready In:
5mins
Yields:
Units:

ingredients

  • 1 12 ounces gin
  • 2 drops vanilla extract (be careful, don't add more!)
  • 34 ounce simple syrup (1 to 1 recipe can be found here $notetemplate1$)
  • 12 ounce beet juice
  • 12 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1 egg white, or 3/4 ounce aquafaba
  • 2 12 ounces chilled pomegranate soda (such as Izze)

directions

  • Combine gin, vanilla, simple syrup, beet juice, lemon juice, and egg white in a cocktail shaker and shake without ice until emulsified, about 10 seconds. Add ice, reseal the shaker, and shake vigorously until well chilled and very frothy, about 30 seconds-it's longer than you'd think. Double-strain into a chilled 12-ounce collins glass. Let foam settle, then slowly top off with pomegranate soda until the foam rises above the rim of the glass.
