The Heartbeet Cocktail

For Valentine’s Day this year, DIY Cocktails and I came up with a different kind of cocktail, one that is built around the beet. The Heartbeet Cocktail (get it?), is made with tequila and a pomegranate liqueur. It’s lightly sweet and bright with a slight earthy flavor from the beet. Best of all, it’s a beautiful deep red color, perfect for a romantic holiday.

The Heartbeet Cocktail

(makes one cocktail)


    1 1/2 oz tequila
    2 oz beet juice
    1/4 oz pomegranate liqueur
    1/4 oz lemon juice
    Lemon twist to garnish


First, juice the beet, either with a juicer or a blender. To juice with a blender, chop the beet up, run on the finest setting, and push through a sieve. (You also just buy beet juice from the store.) Be careful with the juice–it stains.

In a cocktail shaker, combine all liquids over ice and shake thoroughly. Strain into a glass and garnish with a lemon twist.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
