You can also use a storebought beet juice but you may need to add more simple syrup to the final cocktail.

To make one cocktail, combine 2 ounces of the beet juice with 1 1/2 ounce vodka, 1/2 ounce ginger syrup, and 1/2 ounce lemon juice in a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake well until cocktail shaker is very cold. Strain drink into a coupe or Martini glass. Float a lemon slice on top to serve.
