Powerpuff Martini

March 2nd, 2011

I've been waiting for the right garnish for this one for a while. After discovering Bubblegum Vodka, I knew another custom martini was in the works. Most of the Bubblegum martinis I've seen were more or less bubblegum flavored vodka on the rocks, so I endeavored to come up with something unique that complemented this flavor, but didn't distract from it. The result is mixing peach and bubblegum together.

Furthermore, I knew I wanted to add pop rocks to the rim, but had to find a way to add them without setting them off immediately. Using grease instead of liquid accomplishes this nicely. So buttering the rim allows the pop rocks to adorn the glass rim without "popping" right away.

This is most definitely the girliest cocktail in my mix of martinis, but yet it's completely delicious. :)

  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz Bubblegum Infused Vodka
  • 1 oz Peach Schnapps
  • Butter
  • Pop Rocks

Chill an up glass with crushed ice and water. Shake the liquid ingredients with ice in a shaker until it sweats. Run a slice of butter around the glass and rim it with the pop rocks.


Zen Martini

February 28th, 2011

This cocktail tastes like what I'd imagine fresh chlorophyll might taste like. Fresh, green, and alive. The green tea flavored Zen Green Tea liquor accomplishes this nicely while the other ingredients compliment without distracting from the fresh green flavor.

  • 2 oz Zen Green Tea Liqueur
  • 1 1/2 oz Ginger-Infused Vodka
  • 1 oz Simple Syrup
  • 1/2 oz Lime Juice
  • Lime Slice

Chill an up glass with crushed ice and water. Shake the liquid ingredients with ice in a shaker until it sweats. Garnish with a slice of lime.
