Beet Negroni

If imitation weren't the best form of flattery well this blog wouldn't even exist. Way back in December we were introduced to a beet Negroni in Parm in New York and we couldn't wait to try it out ourselves at home. Finally got our act together in February (we move slowly round these parts) and it was worth the wait. We infused thinly sliced raw peeled beets in gin and let it sit for 3 days. We strained the gin and stirred it with equal parts Campari and Sweet Vermouth and lots of ice with a slice of orange. Very satisfying and such beautiful deep rich reds and oranges.  
This has a very earthy flavor so if you like it lighter I'd suggest infusing it for a shorter time - I just couldn't take my eyes off the infuser to strain it sooner.
