Beetroot & Apple Gin Cocktail

Ingredients for Beetroot & Apple Gin Cocktail:

  • 1 ½ ounces beet-infused Beefeater gin
  • 1 ounce spiced apple shrub
  • ½ ounce Calvados
  • ½ ounce fresh squeezed lime juice

Instructions for making Beetroot & Apple Gin Cocktail:

  1. Add two peeled medium-to-large beetroots to one litre of gin in a sealable container and place in a cool, dark place for 2 to 3 days.
  2. Meanwhile, separately place five thinly sliced Granny Smith apples, three medium-sized pieces of ginger, a tablespoon of black peppercorns and two cups of sugar in a sealable container and marinate in the refrigerator for four days, allowing the sugar to break down the fruit. On day five, add a cup of champagne vinegar, re-seal and place back in the fridge for another five days, before straining and storing for future use.
  3. Strain off the infusion, which is now ready to serve and should be kept refrigerated.
  4. Combine ingredients.
