icon Beton

"Beton" literally translates as "concrete" from Czech. However, in this case the name of the cocktail simply derives from the first few letters of Becherovka and tonic.


  • 4 measures Becherovka (double shot)
  • 1 measure lemon juice (a dash)
  • 20 measures tonic water (2/3 can
  • Slice of lemon
  • Ice

Stir with ice and pour into a highball glass. Add a thin slice of lemon.
