Mint MartiniMarch 11, 2014
A wrote about making infused vodka a few days ago, in that particular post I made mint vodka.
I put the vodka to good use and mixed up a smashing mint martini!
2 measures mint infused vodka
1 measure of Vermouth
Minted sugar- blitz granulated sugar with a bunch of fresh mint
To 'rim' the glass, pour a little vermouth onto a plate, upturn the glass and dip the rim into the liquid. Spread the minted sugar onto another plate and dip the glass into the sugar. Twist the glass around to make sure the rim is well coated.
Crack 5 or 6 ice cubes into a cocktail shaker and pour over the vodka and Vermouth, shake vigorously until the shaker is too cold to hold with bare hands then strain into the waiting rimmed glass.
