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