If you follow me on instagram, you’ve likely already gotten a peek at some of the fun drink experiments I’ve been doing for Serious Eats. I like the work I do on them both because of how much better I’ve become at developing recipes and how it makes me push myself to use ingredients in new ways. It’s a good feeling. I suspect many of you have those sort of kitchen moments as well. As we cook more and more, it’s so cool to feel those “Aha!’ moments happen very organically and more frequently, right?
I’m particularly proud of this shrub, which is a prime example of a time when I felt like I utilized an ingredient in a way that I hadn’t in the past. I know many of you are makers and doers like me (and might be excited by a strange thing like a beet, celery, and horseradish shrub), so I thought I’d share the recipe here too along with some outtakes from my shoot. Head on over to Serious Eats for the beet, celery, and horseradish shrub recipe and check out all 3 beet cocktails to make at home.
