The Hot Pink

Inspired by my favorite way to eat beets—with horseradish and a cider vinegar dressing—this savory beet shrub is a great match for a juniper-forward gin like Tanqueray. The finished product here has just a touch of heat from the horseradish.

As I've made more shrubs for cocktails, I've found that I often prefer something with less than a 1:1 ratio of syrup to vinegar. I definitely went light on the vinegar here, but you can add more to your taste if desired.
