Cocktail Hour- Beet Juice Martinis

Want some vitamins along with your booze?  Well, then, this is the cocktail for you.  Simply take your basic martini and add beet juice, a bit of lime, and voilà- you have a tasty and (sort of) nutritious drink.

Recipe (for 1):

2 oz gin
1/2 oz (or less) dry vermouth
1 oz beet juice (available at Loblaws, and bigger grocery stores, usually in the health food section, and at some health food stores)
1/4 lime – juice

Garnishes:  herb sprig (such as marjoram, oregano, chervil, etc.) or celery leaves, twist of lime, olives or cocktail onions or caper berries or pickled beets or anything you like.

Cheers!
