Just the colour of this cocktail will turn heads, the colour that of a rich ruby red lipstick waiting to be kissed. A grown up flavour, intense with a cherry aftertaste, a superior drink for a superior vodka.
- 50ml Stoli Elit
- 15ml maraschino liqueur
- 2 slices of pickled beetroot plus 1 tsp of the juice
- 10ml fresh lime juice
- 3 dashes orange bitters
Gently muddle the beetroot, (not too much it should not be a puree) in the bottom of a shaker. Place all the other in the shaker together with ice, shake sharply, double strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a sprig of dill sitting on the edge of the glass and thin slice of heart shaped beetroot lying on top of the dill.
