Ouch – this will equal some serious trash stink in NYC
It’s been a long while, but I wrote this right after Memorial day and it seems like the world could use some more hot weather drinks as it goes over 100 degrees here in Manhattan…
As always, a visit to the Virginia countryside tends to inspire cocktail creation. Maybe the area’s history of moonshine has a role, but I think it is more about having lots of fresh ingredients and weather that dictates what one should drink.
This time around I arrived to find that our hosts had received the lovely gift of three infused vodkas: vanilla, meyer lemon, and pear.
The best drinks to come out of the event were something along the lines of:
1/2 Lemon infused vodka
1/2 White Rum
Splash Dry Vermouth
1/2 Lime’s juice
Memorial Day Martini
1/2 Vanilla infused vodka
1/2 Bombay Sapphire
1/4 St Germain’s Elderflower liqueur
1/8 Dry Vermouth
1/2 Lime’s Juice
Shake both of them, the martini can be up, but put the shake on the rocks with the shaken ice.
