Beetroot Shots

BM # 40
Week 4   Day 1

Mocktails are similar to cocktails, just that they do not contain alcohol.These are a blend of juices, syrups, crushes,fruits, crushed ice and topped with either water or aerated water or soda, the choices are unlimited.These could be frozen drinks, muddled drinks,stir drinks and of course health drinks.For today I have chosen a health drink.

Beet root shots!

Tarla Dalal always said that good things always come in small packages.The shots are the most exotic among mocktails.These are served in small glasses , about 60 ml and finished in one gulp.The drink normally has a distinct flavor.

The beet root shots are prepared with boiled beet root, a tinge of chilly and tanginess of lemon and mint.Here is how I prepared the drink...

2 beetroots, boiled, peeled and chopped
1 green chilly
1/2 carrot
1tsp lemon juice
Black salt to taste
Mint leaves for garnish
Combine all ingredients.
Add a cup of water and blend in a mixie.
Add crushed ice to shot glasses and pour the juice over it.
Garnish with mint and serve immediately.
