Happy Friday everyone! It’s martini time! The temperatures are rising here in the PNW – there’s a threat that we may see close to 100 degree temperatures by Saturday. I think that this calls for a whole pitcher of martinis. Ok – maybe it’s not quite that extreme yet. At the very least, if you are looking for a recipe that makes a fruity martini for one, look no further (or – feel free to double the recipe to share).
Roasted Strawberry and Rhubarb Martini
Serves 1 (but could easily be adapted for more)
1 ounce roasted strawberry and rhubarb mashed
2 ounces vodka
juice of 1/2 a lemon
a dash vanilla
Muddle the roasted strawberry and rhubarb in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Add the vodka, lemon and vanilla. Add ice and shake. Serve in a chilled martini glass with a sugar dipped rim (I ran a bit of vanilla over the rim of my martini glass and then dipped it in sugar).
