For the Beet Infused Vodka

ingredients

  • 2 pounds beets, fresh, peeled and sliced
  • 1 liter vodka

To Make the Beet Infused Vodka

Method

  • Step 1

    Combine vodka and beets in a 64-ounce mason jar, seal lid and shake for 2 minutes. Let steep for 48 hours in a cool dark area. Using a mesh strainer, strain vodka and reserve in a mason jar. (Any more than 70 hours will cause over-infusion and the vodka will turn into a brownish color).

For the Ginger Syrup

ingredients

  • 8 ounces ginger, peeled and sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar

To Make the Ginger Syrup

Method

  • Step 1

    Add ginger and 1 cup water to a high-speed blender, blend until smooth. Strain the ginger juice through a mesh strainer. In a pot over medium heat, add ginger juice, sugar and simmer until the sugar has dissolved, 5 minutes. Let it cool down, pour it into a pint-sized mason jar and refrigerate to use as needed.
