Lemon Beet Sparkling Mocktails

Lemon-Beet-Sparkling-Mocktails

 

Makes 4, 8-oz drinks

These mocktails are my go-to drink when guests arrive because they’re so incredibly beautiful. Plus, they’re stinkin’ simple to make and healthy to boot. No one ever guesses there are beets involved! Even better – I like to make larger batches of the cooked pureed beets and freeze them so I always have some on hand at a moments notice.

 

2 large beets, peeled and cut in half (enough to make 1/2 C puree)

1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

zest of 1 lemon

3 TBSP honey

32-oz club soda

Lemon wedges for garnish

 

  1. Place beets in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring beets to a boil over high heat, cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook beets until soft, about 20-25 minutes. Drain beets and let cool 10 minutes.
  2. Place cooled beets in a food processor and puree until smooth. 
  3. In a small bowl, mix 1/2 C of the beet puree (freeze the rest for a later use), the lemon juice, zest and honey.
  4. Fill 4 glasses with ice. Place 1-2 TBSP of the lemon-beet mixture (more or less to your taste) in each glass. Pour in 8-oz club soda and garnish each glass with a lemon wedge.
