Honeyed Beet Sparklers

Serves 2
Time 1 hr 10 min
These bright and beautiful cocktails lend an air of festivity to any occasion. If store-bought beet juice isn’t available, purée canned beets in a blender until smooth then strain through a fine-mesh strainer. Use extra syrup to glaze your holiday ham or drizzle over roasted veggies. Watch our how-to video.
Ingredients
  • 20 fresh sage leaves
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup beet juice chilled
  • 1/2 cup sparkling white wine chilled
Method

In a small saucepan, combine sage, honey and 1/2 cup water and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until honey is completely dissolved, about 2 minutes. Let cool to room temperature. Strain syrup through a fine-mesh strainer refrigerate until cold before using. Makes about 1/2 cup syrup. Syrup can be made in advance and refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

Pour 1 tablespoon syrup into each of 2 sparkling wine glasses or other small glasses. Divide beet juice and sparkling wine between the glasses and serve.
