A totally cheesy name but a delicious drink; I HAVE to come up with kooky holiday cocktail names. In lieu of myself being on a juicing kick, I’ve been trying to detox my liver from a celebratory few months.
Enjoying the mixing of all the possibilities one could concoct, I gave birth to this fabulously beautiful love infused cocktail.
After I picked the boys up from school, there were a box of fresh oranges in front of a house labeled “Free Fruit” so we stopped and D grabbed like six oranges for me. I thought “orange and beet would go great together”.
I feel like Spring is coming and I always think of fresh herbs, fresh flowers… So with that in mind I decided to add a little sweet floral essence with St. Germaine; most people call it the bartender’s ketchup but it does have it’s place; also very delicious!

First thing, you will need a JUICER or have your local juice bar make you some to take home with you. I would say one small beet per drink.
Then juice your citrus. Combine all ingredients in your mixing tin or glass, shake with ice and serve.
