Next, I strained the beet puree using a sieve over a glass bowl and col­lected the deep pink juice (you can skip this step as long as you puree until smooth and don’t mind a lit­tle “sed­i­ment” in the lemonade). To see how it would work, I used the beet juice to make pink lemon­ade. Note that saffron also works for the yellow-to-orange section of the color spectrum, but is much more expensive than tumeric. And in case any­one is won­der­ing why I’d go to all this trou­ble: We have made the deci­sion to avoid syn­thetic food dyes in our house. You can also try order­ing pre­pared nat­ural food dyes from Choco­late Craft, Seelect, Maggie’s Nat­u­rals, or India Tree.

If you’re going for a slightly more orange hue, you can’t go wrong with carrot juice. Per the instructions at Whole New Mom, start by washing and chopping the cabbage (or radicchio); put the cabbage in a pot, cover with water, and simmer on the stovetop for 10 minutes.http://www.networx.com/article/8-ways-to-make-organic-diy-food-coloring This process will leave you with a purple liquid.
