1 oz. Ciroc Red Berry Vodka

1/2 oz. Pineapple-Sage & Lemon syrup (House-made)

1 spritz of Orange Blossom Hydrocol

GARNISH:

Long Lemon Twist

GLASSWARE:

Martini

INSPIRATION:

My inspiration for this cocktail comes from my experience of working with Sours. This drink is not sour but, uses similar elements that are found in the cocktail family of Sours. I wanted to make a drink that was unique, showcased VEEV, balanced, used modern bartending techniques and methods but, also be quick and simple for a bartender to make during peak times.

This drink is similar to a Cosmopolitan. Instead of Triple Sec or Orange Liqueur, I use VEEV, instead of Citron vodka, I use Ciroc Red Berry vodka. The juice and citrus components of this drink are represented by the use of my Pineapple-Sage and Lemon syrup.The hydrocol spritz adds a nice bouquet for the nose as you drink this cocktail. Light, refreshing, balanced and delicious.
