Since I announced Thursday's t-shirt contest for the 42 Below t-shirts, I've gotten 47 e-mails with recipes. And one good one.
Seriously, do people really think I don't know a gin martini has vermouth in it? C'mon guys.
So, there's still plenty of t-shirts left, just e-mail a cool vodka recipe to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
For now here's the one great one I've gotten.
A damn fine recipe to be sure, though I had to look up "macerate." Get yours in right now!First, make your own pomegranate vodka.
Oh, don't look at me like that. It's easy, meditative, and can be done in front of the tv. Fill a mason jar with one pomegranate's worth of fruit (the juicy bits, not the pith; stay sensible), macerate, add 1/2 cup sugar, fill to the top with vodka. Store in a cool dark place for a minimum of three weeks, shaking weekly.
2 oz pomegranate vodka
1 oz lemon juice
dash of bitters
Because pomegranate vodka is sweeter than you think.
