Here’s an original from me.
We’re taking a vacation on the Russian River at Sanctuaire. Our friends Eric and Margie brought up a bottle of Fraser River Raspberry Vodka from Hangar One. I actually had the pleasure of watching the distillation process on a tour of the facilities a few months ago. Pictures of that in a bit.
So our ingredients were restricted to what we had on hand, but happened to have some good stuff.
1 oz Hangar One Fraser River Raspberry Flavored Vodka
2 oz orange juice
1 dash aromatic bitters (Angostura, or homemade “60 First Street” bitters, if you got ’em)
1 mint leaf
We just built them in wine glasses, but since there is juice, probably best to shake the liquid ingredients over ice, then strain into a wine glass. Gently crush the mint leaf and add.
Good on a sunny afternoon, or would be a great brunch accompaniment!
