Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - Beet-nik Gimlet

July 11, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

Hey There!

A few weeks ago we spent some time in Chicago. While there we dined at Beatnik, a boho chic, river side Moroccan, French, Italian oasis. This place is an entire mood. With our entrees, we ordered their heirloom carrots which were served on top of their roasted beet tahini hummus and we fell in love with the combination.  We hope you enjoy our interpretation of the dish in cocktail form!! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @ staynfocusimages
