Never Skip a Beet
Pairs With: Gin
Flavor Profile: Beet + Hibiscus + Citrus
One of the self imposed challenges we like to go after as a Cocktail Company is using unexpected flavors in our signature cocktails, which leads us to often venture into the vegetable sphere in search of cool combinations that will equally delight and surprise.
Beets are interesting because they are sweet, but also offer a distinct earthiness that we knew would be fun to build a cocktail around. Plus the color is fantastic.
Back in my culinary days, we did a dish that featured beets with hibiscus, so I knew that flavor was one we should capture in a glass. A bold spirit like gin does wonders against the earthiness of the beets and the floral notes added by the hibiscus infusion. Despite all the complex flavors we wanted this cocktail to be shockingly light, so we hit it with a heavy dose of citrus to brighten things up.
Your true cocktail awaits.
