I am not a great mixologist. But I love to experiment using garden fresh vegetables and fruits to create the perfect Summer cocktail.
The idea of adding beet juice was a plus for me, I don’t tend to enjoy drinks on the sweeter side. Beet juice is a great additive because it adds an earthy, rich flavor. I also like using muddled cucumber or cucumber juice. It is refreshing and simple so the combination does not overwhelm the cocktail.
The liquor is a no-brainer, tequila and freshly squeezed lime juice are a match made in heaven. You can also try this drink with vodka and a little fresh squeezed lemon juice. Or add some soda water to make it a refreshing spritzer cocktail!
