Momofuku’s cocktail menu boasts a variety of unique ingredients. In this one, beets and bok choy make for a complex cocktail with a surprisingly refreshing finish.
1½ ounces Ford’s gin
¾ ounce lemon juice
¾ ounce beet/bok choy syrup
½ ounce Aperol
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Beet/bok choy syrup
Juice beets to yield 2 cups of juice and add equal parts sugar to create beet syrup. Separately in a pot, heat 2 cups of water and 2 stalks of bok choy. Simmer for 15 minutes and strain. Add equal parts sugar to create bok choy syrup. Combine equal parts of each syrup to create beet/bok choy syrup.
Combine all ingredients and finish with a twist of orange peel.
