Source: The Beard Behind the Bar
Served in Highball with ice  
Ingredients:
  • 1.5  - 2 oz Gin or Genever 
  • 3/4 oz Ginger simple syrup (or simple syrup and ginger slices) I'm going to have light ginger syrup 1/2 cup sugar to 1 cup water 
  • 3/4 oz Lime juice 
  • 2-3 sliced beets (I'm going to use standard red beet for this) 
  • 4-5 Mint Leaves
 
Directions:
  • Shake all ingredients with and serve in glass.
  • Topped with ginger beer, ginger ale, lemon lime soda, soda water, or champagne. (I will probably use ginger beer.) 
  • Garnish with a red or candy cane beet. 
 
Extra talking point r/e this drink:
  • Can be muddled for more beet flavor or shaken with ice for less earthy flavor.
