About this Cocktail

This is a cocktail I created for use at Blackberry Farm, a Relais & Chateaux resort located in Walland, TN. This cocktail brings to mind the brightness and earthiness that encompasses the summer months.

Ingredients:
  • 1.5 oz. Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka
  • .75 oz. Dolin Blanc Vermouth
  • .5 oz. Garden Herb Tea*
  • .25 oz. Simple Syrup (2:1 ratio)
  • 3 one inch by one inch watermelon cubes
  • *Garden Herb Tea recipe: Place 3 rosemary stems, 3 thyme sprigs, 3 stems of tarragon, 1 basil leaf and 2 bay leaves in a container. Add 2 cups of boiling water and stir to mix. Let it steep for 10 minutes. Strain out the tea into a container of your choice. Keep refrigerated. Will stay good for at least a week.
Preparation:

In a mixing tin with ice add everything except one watermelon cube. Shake till cold and then strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with the remaining watermelon cube on a cocktail pick.
