Beet me in St. Louis

So once you've infused a load of gin with beets it's time to search for more ways to enjoy it, right? Thanks to the handy dandy search engine known as Google I came across this gem and put tarragon on the shopping list. To make the Honey-Tarragon syrup bring equal parts honey and water to a boil, reduce heat and stir until honey has melted, then add as much tarragon as will fit in the liquid and let sit for a few hours - even over night. Keep some of the tarragon leaves for garnish as I can't seem to make a gin cocktail without a herb apparently - check out here, here and here.

1 1/2 ounce Beet-Infused Gin (Beefeater)
1/2 ounce Domaine De Canton ginger liqueur
1/2 ounce Honey-Tarragon Syrup
1/2 ounce lemon juice
Tarragon leaves
Combine all ingredients in shaker with ice, shake and serve. Tarragon leaves for garnish.
