I partnered with Empress 1908 Gin to mix up the Drop the Beet Cocktail recipe! Recipe and ideas are my own.Jump to Recipe
Beet juice in a cocktail is really becoming one of those ingredients that I’m loving. It’s fresh, earthy, and healthy-ish, right? This definitely comes as a surprise to me considering I used to hate beets and beet juice growing up. But mixing the right ingredients with your beet juice in a cocktail can make it taste SO delicious.
For the Drop the Beet Cocktail, I incorporated one of my favorite spirits, Empress 1908 Gin with beet orange juice, fresh lime, greek yogurt, and honey for an exciting and very refreshing cocktail.
Empress 1908 Gin is such a unique spirit. This purple-hued gin is a hand-crafted spirit from British Columbia, Canada. It’s micro-distilled in small batch copper-pot stills and includes botanicals like juniper, coriander seed, grapefruit peel, cinnamon bark, butterfly pea blossoms, and the Fairmont Empress Blend Tea.
What I love about this brand of gin is it has more of a botanical-forward taste, so it mixes well with fresh, herbal, and bright ingredients. And it changes colors when you add citrus to it! Plus, it’s all-natural and gluten-free. Try it for yourself and in the Drop the Beet Cocktail. Click here to purchase Empress 1908 Gin.
Let’s mix up the Drop the Beet Cocktail! Start by adding lime wedges and honey to a cocktail shaker and muddle until all the juice is squeezed from the limes. Add Empress 1908 Gin, yogurt, and ice and shake until chilled.
Fill a cocktail glass with ice (BTW I got my glass from Crate and Barrel, check out their selection of gorgeous glassware here). Next, add the beet orange juice, and strain the cocktail mixture into the glass. If desired, garnish with lime, mint, and an edible flower.
