The Beat

I love savory fresh cocktails. Make a trip to the farmers’ market and The Beat is at your fingertips.

Rim the lip of a chilled cocktail glass with lemon wedge, invert glass and roll in spiced sugar mixture to garnish. Set aside. Pour liquid ingredients into a bar tin, add ice and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Strain into the rimmed cocktail glass. Makes 1 cocktail.

* Mix ½ teaspoon ground Chinese Five Spice powder with 1½ tablespoons granulated sugar until evenly distributed. Pour on a small plate to rim glass.

** Peel and juice 1 large raw, red beet. Fine strain the juice and set aside. (You can also find bottled beet juice at a well-stocked market or health food store.)
