A splash of beet juice not only mellows out bitter Italian Campari, but also gives this aperitif an alluring earthy undertone and a deep purple hue. Serve with olives and cheese for your most sophisticated beachside happy hour yet. 

How to Make It

Stir together fresh-pressed beet juice, fresh orange juice, gin, and Campari. Pour into an ice-filled rocks glass. Garnish with an orange slice, if desired.
