About this Cocktail

Gen. Charles Cornwallis suffered a bitter defeat at the hands of Nathaniel Greene at the Battle of Guilford Courthouse during the American Revolution. GIA in Greensboro, NC is located near the site of this beatdown.

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 oz. Spiced Rum
  • 1 oz. Beet-Cognac Reduction
  • 1 oz. Vanilla Vodka
  • 1 oz. Agave Nectar
  • 3/4 oz. Lime Juice
Preparation:

This one will require a bit of kitchen prep to get your Beet-Cognac reduction together. Once you have that, combine it with Spiced Rum, Vanilla Vodka, Agave Nectar, and lime juice in a mixing glass. Shake and strain over ice...or feel free to have a martini party. Garnish with a lime zest and beet slice.
