Serves 20 (in a rocks glass filled halfway with ice)
4 c beet simple syrup (see recipe below)4 c lime juice6 c Mezcal (I like this one - order from your favorite liquor store)2 c agave nectar3 limes sliced for garnish
This is an easy cocktail to create! Just combine all of the ingredients in the order listed in a gallon container. Shake & stir, then serve over lots of ice with a lime for garnish and fresh flavor.
Beet Simple Syrup
12 c water1 ½ lbs red beets, ends cut off, and diced into small cubes
*Note: You can remove the skin before cooking for a more intense beet flavor in the cocktail, but make sure you still have 1 ½ pounds of beets AFTER peeling! Also, beets that are more pink in color will give you a lovely pink syrup and beets that have a yellow color mixed with red results in a sweeter syrup.
¼ t salt¼ c agave nectar
Place all the ingredients in pan, bring to a boil, and then simmer covered until you have 4 cups of liquid. This should take around 45 minutes of simmering. Strain the liquid through a fine mesh sieve; refrigerate if not ready to serve immediately.
