Serves : Makes enough shrub for 2 cocktails

With a relatively low amount of alcohol, this refreshing and tart cocktail is perfect for brunch. Fresh beet juice is key here—purchase it from a juice bar, or press it at home; shelf-stable bottled juices won’t have the same flavor or color.

How to Make It

Step 1    Make the shrub

Whisk together 1 cup water, sugar, and vinegar in a large bowl until sugar is dissolved. Stir in beet juice, lemon juice, and remaining 4 cups water. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 days or up to 1 week.

Step 2    Make a cocktail

Combine 1/2 cup beet shrub and vodka, if using, in a mixing glass; fill glass with ice, and stir until frosty. Strain into a large coupe or wine glass. Top with a splash of seltzer, and garnish with lemon wheel.

Make Ahead

Shrub can be covered and stored in refrigerator up to 1 week.
