@Katherine, yes you can buy beet juice. Typically it can found in the juice aisle or sometimes where you buy Kombucha. If you have a Wholfood's you can probably find it there. I buy mine at Sprouts.

Question: I don't have a juicer. Way to get juice without one? Or can it be purchased? Can't wait to try this.

I love this idea. I think I'll host a mocktail party soon.
