Guess where I'm drinking this beet cocktail?

The world is divided between beet lovers and haters -- and I definitely fall in the former category. I love the earthy, elemental taste of the root vegetable. And this beet cocktail, made with gin, Aperol, Canton Ginger Liqueur, lemon, mint and beets (of course), not only perfectly balances all those elements, but is a beautiful color.

The beet garnish is another nice touch, so that you can eat -- as well as drink -- your vegetables.

Can you guess where I'm drinking?
