1cl Simple Syrup.
1.5cl Ginger Syrup.
1.5cl Green Chartreuse.
2 sprigs of Rosemary.
Shake the first five ingredients with ice, then place the last two into a Tumbler and light them on fire. Extinguish the flames by straining the contents of your shaker over them, then top the drink with Soda.
Try subbing thyme for rosemary
For the simple syrup:
1 cup coarsely chopped, fresh ginger
1 cup water
1 cup natural cane sugar
For the cocktail:
9 oz vodka
3-5 medium beets, scrubbed and quartered (or find beet juice at the local grocery or juice shop)
6 limes, supremed and halved
3 oranges, supremed and quartered
6 ounces ginger simple syrup
Dash of Angostura, orange, or other preferred bitters
First, make the ginger simple syrup. Combine the ginger, water, and cane sugar in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil, covered, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 1/2 hour. Strain the contents and set the simple syrup aside to cool. (Place it in the fridge to speed the process up.)
Run the beets through your juicer until you have 6 ounces of beet juice. Measure that out, and set aside. Run the limes and oranges through. Pour the citrus juices into a tall pitcher. Add the beet juice, 9 ounces vodka, 6 ounces of ginger simple syrup, and a few generous dashes of your favorite bitters. Stir.
Add a small handful of crushed ice to each of 6 glasses. Fill the glasses about halfway with the cocktail mix, and top with a few ounces of sparkling water. Enjoy!
