I made vanilla vodka a while back and promptly stuck it in the hall closet and forgot about it. I rediscovered it over the weekend and it’s been sitting out on the counter bugging me.
Consider this an abortive attempt.
- 1.5 oz vanilla vodka
- .5 oz Suze (gentian liqueur)
- .5 oz lemon juice
- .25 oz simple syrup
- barspoon grenadine
Shake everything except the grenadine with ice. Pour, then pour the grenadine in; let it sink.
It’s not bad, but it’s not very distinctive. Or it may be that I’m not into citrus juice cocktails these days. More work is required.
Also, I’ve made a second gin. I need to blog about it.
UPDATE: The cocktail is growing on me.
