The Taproot Recipe

Taproot cocktail
Autumn Giles

Although this drink is served over ice, it still packs a toasty punch thanks to the layers of warm flavors from the Bulleit Bourbon and Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth.

No juicer? Alas, me either. I had no problem getting a small cup of beet juice from the my local health food store.
