This boozy beet float is a spin on the classic root beer float, but with gin and Topo Chico. Photo from Juice Society.

Juice Society just opened a retail location at 1100 S. Lamar Blvd., and though you can’t buy their organic, cold-pressed juices in other stores, you can buy them online for delivery.

No matter how you buy them — or if you have another favorite brand — Juice Society shares recipes on its blog ( for unexpected dishes that include freshly pressed juice, such as a beet hummus or a smoothie bowl. (They also sell some of those dishes in the store.)

This boozy root-beer-inspired float is one that would win over guests at any party, or could be a good fit for a solo treat during a late-night binge of “Broad City.”

Boozy Root Down Float

1.5 oz. Hendricks gin
4 to 6 oz. Juice Society Root Down (freshly-pressed beet, carrot, apple, ginger, lemon and celery)
2 scoops bourbon vanilla ice cream
Splash of sparkling water
Cucumber (for garnish)

Mix together the gin and juice. In a tall float glass (or a chilled beer pint glass), add the ice cream and then pour the gin mixture over the scoops. Top off the float with your sparkling water of choice, such as Topo Chico. Add a cucumber garnish, if using.
