Author Vaughn Stafford Gray learned to make this supremely Instagrammable ruby-hued beet juice cocktail from sugarcane farmer and cane juice entrepreneur Toussaint Davy who touts the drink as a healthful “elixir cocktail.” The jury is out on whether or not Davy’s recipe can mend a broken heart, but the resulting refreshment is so well-balanced, you just might confuse it for a more innocent juice bar beverage. For the best results, seek out (or juice your own) fresh-pressed sugarcane, lime, ginger, and beet juices, which retain more of the raw ingredients’ potency and wholesome goodness.
