Beetroot Juice

Beetroot juice brings an earthy sweetness and a vibrant color to the mix. 2oz is just the right amount to ensure its presence is felt without overpowering the drink. Use less and you'll miss the beat of the beet, use more, and it's a veggie fest in a glass.

Lemon Juice

The zesty 1oz of lemon juice is the acidic twist that brightens the cocktail, giving it a refreshing tang. Without it, you'd have a rather flat beet-vodka mash-up. Substituting with lime juice would bring a different kind of zesty flair.

Ah, vodka - 1.5oz to provide the backbone of the cocktail without making you feel like you're on a Siberian adventure. Too much may lead to an overpowering alcohol presence; too little, and you're sipping beet lemonade. Gin could swap in for an herbaceous take.

Ice Cubes

Ice cubes serve as the chilling agents that make your Beetroot Bliss a cold treasure. It dilutes the mix slightly for a smoother sip and if you ditch the cubes, you're in for a room-temp roulette.

In case you forgot basics how to make Beetroot Bliss

Add your ingredients to the shaker first, then ice. Fill it up to ¾ of its capacity to ensure enough space for shaking. Hold the shaker with both hands (one on the top and one on the bottom) and shake vigorously. The shake should come from your shoulders, not your wrists.

Place your chosen strainer on top of the shaker or mixing glass, ensuring a secure fit. Pour the cocktail into a glass through the strainer, which will catch solid ingredients and ice. If double straining, hold the fine mesh strainer between the shaker and the glass.
