See No Weevil
Back in 1915, the insidious boll weevil decimated the cotton crops of Enterprise, Alabama… and paradoxically paved the way for a stronger local economy. Hear about the monument they erected in thanks, then take a cotton to a drink that celebrates Enterprise’s alternate crop:
“See No Weevil” - a philosophy and a custom cocktail courtesy of Wes Fraser, bartender at Bottletree in Birmingham, AL.
In a shaker add:
- 4 parts Stoli vanilla
- 2 1/2 parts count Creme de Cacao
- Splash of vanilla coconut simple syrup (to taste)
- 1 part Half & Half
Shake and pour over ice. Sprinkle with cottonesque toasted coconut and dust with cinnamon. Raise it high, like Lady Enterprise with her weevil. Go nuts.
