Ginger Beet Old-Fashioned

A cocktail is a treat – and this Ginger Beet Old-Fashioned is kinda special.

Cocktails should be special, and delicious, and in my opinion, beautiful to look at. The beautiful color, and bold sweetness of the beets in this old fashioned make the drink really spectacular.

I used a ginger simple syrup to add an extra little kick.

Beets & FODMAPs

Note from Dédé: Beets are low FODMAP in amounts of 20g, which roughly translates to a couple of slices.

But what about beet juice? Well, we are extrapolating for our low FODMAP purposes.

The recipe calls for .75 ounces of juice, which is roughly 20g. You could juice your own beets, if you have a juicer.

Or you could buy a 100% beet juice product, such as Lakewood Organic Pure Beet Juice. Any which way, try the drink and see how you do. That’s the ultimate test!
