So I forgot yesterday was Friday. Am I the only one who’s starting to lose time? It could be because my husbands been working from home for the last week. Or it could be that my kid’s school has been cancelled for three weeks - THREE WEEKS! It’s okay, I’m okay. I'm going to have to up my cocktail posts though...
This drink is a bit of a misdirect, don’t let the pink color fool you. I’ve had some beet simple syrup (just simmer some beets in equal parts water and sugar) in my fridge for a while just waiting to be used. Working on that theme I went with more earthy, vegetable flavors of the Cinq Apertivo and the Green Chili Vodka, which also adds a nice hint of spiciness. While it looks a little fluffy, it’s definitely punching above its weight.
2 oz. St. Georges Green Chili Vodka
0.25 oz. Green Chartreuse
0.25 oz. Cinq Aperitivo
0.25 oz. lemon juice
0.25 oz. beet simple syrup
2-4 drops Regan’s Orange Bitters
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice, shake until chilled and diluted. Pout into a crystal swan… or whatever glass you prefer.
