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
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!
