Ginger Beet Martini Cocktail Recipe

On a recent trip to Paris, I had a drink at the undeniably chic Hotel L’Amour hidden off one of our favorite streets, 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 Ginger Beet Martini Cocktail recipe was created, which gets a solid oui from us. 

Now, go stock up on all your cooking essentials, then head into the kitchen, make this, and share it with us by tagging @saltandwind and #swsociety on social!
