It’s Fall, almost Winter, but we’re celebrating another season too — Sugar Beet season! Why should we care? Sugar Beet sugar makes up about 20% of the world’s sugar. And thanks to one very smart Minnesotan, Sugar Beets are now being turned into vodka. It’s called BET Vodka, and it was created by Ben Brueshoff. Ben stopped by our studio to make BET Vodka cocktails you can make at home!
