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.

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.
