Summoning Beetlejuice with a Vibrant Beet Cocktail – A Drink You Can’t Refuse!
Have you ever felt a chill running down your spine as you watched Tim Burton’s classic 1988 dark comedy, “Beetlejuice”? If so, then you’re the perfect candidate to whip up a cocktail that’s just as colorful and otherworldly as the film itself. Introducing the “Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice” cocktail, a drink so delicious that you might just say its name three times!
The Unique Ingredient – Beet Syrup
The standout feature of this cocktail is its beet syrup. This homemade concoction combines sugar, honey, apple cider vinegar, and chopped beets into a thick, vibrant liquid that not only gives the cocktail its distinctive color but also a rich, earthy flavor. The beets are simmered until soft, then strained, resulting in a syrup that’s as visually arresting as any of Beetlejuice’s antics.
Why This Cocktail Works
This cocktail is not just a visual treat; it’s also a tastebud sensation. The beet syrup adds earthiness, the lime juice offers tang, the mezcal provides smokiness, and the ginger beer and seltzer bring effervescence. Even bartenders at The Gin Bar recommend it as a mocktail by simply omitting the mezcal. So, whether you’re hosting a Halloween party, a “Beetlejuice” movie night, or just hanging out in your recently-deceased best attire, this cocktail is an experience in itself.
