Summer doesn’t have to be all about sweet and fruity drinks dancing with umbrella straws – you can celebrate the season with something a little more sophisticated and savory.
I love an occasional martini, especially when it’s ice cold on a warm night (even better if sitting outside at a sidewalk cafe or restaurant patio). But sometimes this classic cocktail could use a little more excitement…even if your rebellious side means swapping out your olive for a twist. Let’s try shaking things up! By using a bison grass vodka (which has vanilla and grassy notes) along with a vermouth infused with Herbs de Provence – you are on your way to a surprisingly floral, fresh and very unexpected happy hour.
Top with a few drops of citrus bitters and a cornichon garnish sprinkled with Fleur De Sel to round out additional savory notes. Get ready to teleport yourself to Paris with French inspired ingredients because you will be exclaiming à votre santé in no time!
