Ye Olde Tavern Martini (Vermont)
Featured Pinch Tips Video
- 4 oz. rowan’s creek bourbon whiskey
- 1 ½ oz. maple syrup
- 2 lemons, juiced (about 2 oz.)
- optional garnish: lemon twist
1If you’re using martini glasses, chill the martini glasses with ice and water while you prepare the cocktail OR do what I used to do and keep the glasses in the freezer ready to go.
2Fill half of a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the bourbon whiskey, maple syrup, and lemon juice. Give it one shake and let it sit for 2 minutes to settle and soften the flavors … then go ahead and give it a SHAKE, Shake, shake as hard as you can. You want that nice icy film on top after pouring.
3Strain into the chilled martini glasses or a double old-fashioned filled with ice.
