This Sweet Beet Strawberry & Tarragon Vodka Smash is a unique and fun summer cocktail. The savory sweet beet tarragon simple syrup blends perfectly with juicy strawberries.
Add golden beet chunks, granulated sugar, and water into a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, lower to a simmer, and let simmer for 10 minutes.
Remove from heat, add tarragon, cover, and let sit for another 15 minutes.
Strain syrup into a clean jar. Let cool completely before using.
Add syrup and strawberries to a large pitcher. Use a muddler or handle of a wooden spoon to smash the strawberries in the bottom of the pitcher. Add lime juice, vodka, and sparkling water.
Garnish with beets, strawberries, tarragon, and mint.
