On a recent trip to Paris, I had a drink at the undeniably chic Hotel L'Amour hidden off one of our favorite street, Rue des Martyrs, in the 9th arrondissement. Back when I lived there, this area was like the Brooklyn of the city, and, like its New York counterpart, it has become more mainstream but still just as amazing. The drink I had was a ginger beet rum cocktail that inspired me to riff on it for Valentine's Day and thus this beet-ginger-apple martini was created, which gets a solid oui from us. 

Ingredients

  • 3 cooked baby beets

    peeled and stemmed

  • 1 medium Granny Smith apples

    cored and roughly chopped

  • 1-inch piece fresh ginger

    peeled and thinly sliced

  • 6 ounces vodka
  • 2 ounces ginger simple syrup
  • 2 ounces freshly-squeezed lime juice

    plus optional lemon slices for garnish

  • ice

Instructions

Combine beets, apple, and ginger with about 2/3 cup water in a blender and process until very smooth. Pass through a fine mesh seive and add water until the mixture is a juice. 

Tip

You can also use a storebought beet juice but you may need to add more simple syrup to the final cocktail. 

To make one cocktail, combine 2 ounces of the beet juice with 1 1/2 ounce vodka, 1/2 ounce ginger syrup, and 1/2 ounce lemon juice in a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake well until cocktail shaker is very cold. Strain drink into a coupe or Martini glass. Float a lemon slice on top to serve.
