Our Putin on the Ritz cocktail contains vodka, beet syrup, lemon juice and sparkling wine; served up. It’s one cool cocktail!

 

Ingredients

2 oz. vodka

1 oz. lemon juice

1 oz. beet simple syrup

Top with sparkling wine

 

Beet-infused  simple syrup

Add 12 oz. water and 12 oz. white sugar to pot and stir to combine. Add two rough-chopped (peeled) raw beets to the liquid and heat on your stove top (medium heat) covered for about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Transfer to clean glass jar. Store in refrigerator for up to three weeks.

 

To make one delicious cocktail

Shake your ingredients with ice & strain into a chilled martini glass or champagne flute. Top with sparkling wine. We like to garnish ours with a beet section, speared on a toothpick.
