The beet is my new favorite from the produce section. Have you ever had them? They’re a little bit sweet and amazingly earthy…plus they have the most gorgeous shade of pinkish purple. What a perfect addition to a bloody mary!
Be careful when you juice the beets: wear some gloves to prevent from staining your hands and be careful not to cut yourself when you peel them (just like you would with potatoes). If you don’t have a juicer handy, grate or finely chop the peeled beets and blend them with just a little bit of water to get things moving. Strain the juice with a cheesecloth or cocktail strainer so it’s really smooth for your drinks. If you’re making these for a brunch, it’s fine to prep your juices the day before!
