20g beets microgreens
1 medium Granny Smith apples cored and roughly chopped
1-inch piece fresh ginger peeled and thinly sliced
6 ounces vodka
2 ounces ginger simple syrup
2 ounces freshly-squeezed lime juice plus optional lemon slices for garnish
Combine beets, apple, and ginger with about 2/3 cup water in a blender and process until very smooth. Pass through a fine mesh seive and add water until the mixture is a juice.
To make one cocktail, combine 2 ounces of the mixed juice with 1 1/2 ounce vodka, 1/2 ounce ginger syrup, and 1/2 ounce lemon juice in a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake well until cocktail shaker is very cold. Strain drink into a coupe or Martini glass. Float a lemon slice on top to serve.
