The Original Glowing Meltini.

With the holidays around the corner we reminisce of our award winning Glowtini Martini creation that we partnered with Jennie from Barb's Bakery & Bistro to create.   We were among some amazing mixologists and judged by some of the finest and managed to take 2nd place!  A highlight was when one of the judges demanded that he taste the elixir straight and on it's own.. 

so, here it is. The Glowing Meltini.

A few weeks before.. 

Place frozen sour cherries in vodka and let infuse for a few weeks.  

Strain out sour cherries and place cherries in freezer. Pour sour cherry infused vodka in an air tight jar.  

Place some candied ginger in a small jar of coconut sugar.   Allow this to sit for a few weeks so the sugar absorbs ginger flavour. Use this to rim your glass after rubbing lemon juice over rim. 

Pour 1.5 ounces Turmeric Elixir in chilled martini glass.  

Drop 3-5 frozen sour cherries in. 

In martini shaker.. .add..

1.5 ounce Sour Cherry infused vodka

.5 ounces Cointreau  

ice

Shake.  

Pour down side of glass slowly creating a nice gradient of colour.  

Squeeze the juice of 1/2 orange gently over top

Garnish with orange peel twist and fresh rosemary twigs.  

I made a mocktini of this recipe by using sour cherry juice in place of the vodka and omitting the Cointreau. . Still delicious! 

Enjoy!
