Drink your vegetables at happy hour with these beet margaritas, also known as "margabeetas." These cocktails get their gorgeous pink hue naturally from inherently sweet beet juice. You can buy the juice in the produce section of most grocery stores, or juice your own at home.

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Combine tequila, beet juice, lime juice, triple sec and simple syrup in a pitcher.
  2. If you want a salted rim, place salt on a small plate. Rub the rims of 6 glasses with the lime wedge and dip in the salt. Fill the glasses with ice and pour about ½ cup of the margarita mixture into each glass.
  • Tip: To make your own simple syrup: Bring 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring frequently to dissolve the sugar. Let cool for 30 minutes and then refrigerate until cold, at least 1 hour. Makes about 1½ cups.
  • To make ahead: Refrigerate the margarita mix (Step 1) for up to 2 days.
