Currently I have a little obsession with anything beetroot flavoured. After absolutely hating it as a child I can’t seem to get enough of the stuff now, it’s funny how our tastebuds change. Here is an interesting Nordic inspired cocktail that will give you some pep in your step, or rather beet on your feet.
You’ll need (per person):
- 2 Shots of Vodka (I used REYKA Vodka, a smallbatch vodka from Iceland)
- 1 Shot of Dry Vermouth
- 10ml Beetroot juice (I used James White organic beetroot juice)
- Dash of sugar syrup
- 1tsp caraway seeds
- Some pickled beetroot
Combine all into a jug/pitcher and leave the caraway infuse the puce mixture for atleast five minutes to gain its aromats. When ready, strain into a martini glass and garnish with a slice of pickled beetroot on a cocktail stick. The earthiness will be quite beguiling, but it’s a definite to match with my vegan smørrebrød.
