A friend from California, Jane Minogue, had the lovely problem of being in possession of some Meyer lemon-infused vodka. She'd done the infusion herself. She was looking for cocktail recipes, and I don't know too many vodka drinks of any sort beyond the obvious Cosmos and Lemon Drops (and Moscow Mules). Paul Harrington to the rescue again! Here's a drink that uses citrus vodka & is just a little like a Cosmo. It's a Harrington original--credit where credit is due!
2 oz. citrus vodka
1/2 oz. Cointreau
1/2 oz lemon juice
Shake hard over ice cubes, strain into chilled cocktail glass & garnish with something lemon-y--a twist or a wheel. Or, if you've got a Meyer lemon tree RIGHT IN YOUR YARD, I might suggest a pretty little leaf or some such.
Do join me on the air today, right after the Stoopid Daddies, at 4!
