I wanted to create a series of veggie cocktail recipes, delicious concoctions in which vegetables – not fruits – were the star of the show. This Beet Gin and Tonic is a creative and interesting drink – that tastes amazing, too.

Beet juice doesn’t seem like an obvious choice for a veggie cocktail recipe. I searched the internet for inspiration, and I did find a few ideas. But let’s just say that those cocktails didn’t cut it and went right down the drain. (Beet pina colada? Beet Manhattan? Well, no.)

I kept thinking about the herby taste of gin and the earthy taste of beets. Could it be a match made in heaven? I think so! Give this recipe a try.

Ingredients for Beet Gin and Tonic

  • Beet juice
  • Freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Gin
  • Tonic water

Should you make your own beet juice?

I tried, and it was just a complete mess. I was able to buy beet juice at our local grocery store. But if you want to give it a try, here’s a recipe to try.
