About this Cocktail

Created for 'Russian Standard'. I wanted to twist the classic vodka martini with a summer fruit that will appeal to ladies. Saying that I'm kinda partial myself!!
Using Chambéryzette (a rare French vermouth made from wild mountain strawberries) I was able to add the fruit twist without compromising the classic martini's kick.

Ingredients:
  • 60ml vodka (I must say Russian Standard)
  • 25ml Chambéryzette
  • 1 drop Thai bitters
  • 2dashes orange bitters
Preparation:

Stir all ingredients over ice in a mixing glass

Rim the glass with a strawberry and drop in the coupe or martini glass

Pour

Enjoy

    Any thoughts on an alternative for the Chambéryzette? Guessing it's not something easily located in my local market :)

    Could try mixing liqueur de fraise with vermouth or lillet but getting the right ratio will take a bit of trial and error. Or look on the whiskey exchange
