Ruby Queen Recipe
A drink that will make your taste buds sit up and take notice, this twist on a classic scotch has the power to surprise you. Mixing whiskey with beets in addition to honey lemon juice is sure not what you'd expect from these ingredients, but it works surprisingly well!
1½ oz. Scotch whisky
1 oz. Fresh red beet juice
¾ oz. Honey syrup
¾ oz. Freshly squeezed lemon juice
Fresh dill sprig, or tarragon sprig, for garnish
Lemon twist, for garnish
Combine the Scotch whisky, beet juice, honey syrup, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker. Fill it with ice.
Shake well for 30 seconds until well-mixed.
Fine strain into prepared glass.
The best Ruby Queen might be the one that makes use of fresh beet juice. Electric juicers can quickly process these roots and create a luscious red drink in minutes!
