Ted, if you could give us some instructions on how to make the beet infusion and the infused syrup, I could put them in the notes for you.

sure, I use 4 oz of roasted beets per liter for 48 hours. The salter lime agave I use 1/2 oz of salt and the zest of 4 limes infused for into a 1;1 agave syrup for24 hours.
