Beets. Lemons. Sugar. Combined into one lip-smacking Beet Lemonade. Have I lost my mind? That’s entirely possible, but most likely not due to this drink.
Who came up with this root vegetable meets citrus elixir? It wasn’t me. No, It was the bunch at Wisconsin Cheese who asked me to photograph cocktails and cheese for their latest issue of Grate, Pair, Share.
You thought I just did photo shoots for my own online magazine? Nah, I spread my foodie love around.
But just to be sure, you have read the summer issue of FoodieCrush magazine, right?
I must admit I had my doubts about trying this Beet Lemonade from the get-go. Kind of like my Smudge whenever she spies some foreign looking object on her plate. That would be a new vegetable and you’re going to try it little lady.
I’m a novice juicer on a time schedule so I went the much easier and far less messy route and let my juicer languish in the pantry while I shopped for beet juice at Whole Foods. I dutifully followed their recipe, still skeptical of this unusual combo and then…I was stunned at the taste.
In a good, very, very, very, very good way. Very.
