Bartender Says"This unusual use of fresh beet juice and house-made falernum is essentially a tiki drink with winter flavors. The name comes from the phrase 'imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.' The original point of inspiration was the flavor of Coca-Cola— balanced, complex flavor with earthy and floral components." —Troy Sidle, Partner

.5 oz. lime juice
.5 oz. pineapple juice
.25 oz. beet juice
.75 oz. nutmeg Falernum

Swizzle all ingredients in a glass. Pour into a pilsner glass with crushed ice. Top with more crushed ice. Garnish with a grapefruit peel and mint sprig.
