Cocktail with some sting

This beet-infused cocktail is mixed with ginger honey syrup

Honey comes to mind when we think of the bees, but that’s not all they provide. Bees set a great example of hard work and self-reliability – something we only can aspire to achieve in everyday tasks like making our own vodka drinks. Below is a recipe from the good folks at Tito’s Handmade Vodka that combine to make the perfect refreshing cocktail. And, naturally, honey is a staple ingredient. While you can purchase the first two recipes pre-made, everything tastes sweeter than honey when made from scratch.

Beet Infusion 

Earthy and deep, this infusion is best mixed with a hint of sugar or spice for a cocktail that’s oh-so-nice.


500 milliliters Tito’s Handmade Vodka 

3 beets 

Directions [1] Clean, peel and chop beets into cubes. [2] Add Tito’s Handmade Vodka and beets into a resealable glass container. [3] Shake and store in a cool dark place for three days, shaking the infusion daily. [4] Strain when the infusion has reached the desired flavor.

Ginger Honey Syrup
