Ever since Carrie Bradshaw and friends made it fashionable, the cosmopolitan has been a staple of dishy chat over an aperitif. But having recently tasted the Italian liqueur Solerno, make with blood oranges for a tangy citrus kick, I think this variation has its own appeal.
2 parts Solerno Blood Orange liqueur.
2 parts (each) beet juice, carrot juice, orange juice
1 part (each) lemon juice and ginger juice
Orange slices, fresh ginger
Making it: Combine all ingredients in a shaker and roll together. Strain into a rocks glass. Garnish with orange and/or ginger.
