I have generally (translates to always) given our guests a martini as our signature drink. A friend sent me this one that was posted in the paper over a year ago and, going through a box of ‘treasures’, I re-read it and thought you would like to try it.
- 1 1/2 oz. Citron Vodka
- 1/2 oz. Creme de Cacao
- berry sugar
- 1 lime
Okay, I know it has only 2 ingredients, but when you finish the martini glass as below noted, you will see that finishing the drink makes it so special.
Place the martini glass in the freezer while mixing the vodka and liqueur over crushed ice. Discard the ice.
Wipe the entire rim of the glass with a wedge of the lime and then only drip one half of the glass into the sugar.
The tartness of the bare lime side will counter the sweetness of the drink and, if you desire, sip from the sugar side as well.
It has been a while since I posted a martooni, so try it. Hmmmm…tastes like two.
