it’s great dirty, dry and even fruity…

After a visit to the local wine emporium close to my home, I walked out with everything but wine. My mission today was not for a crisp Albariño, deep Pinot Noir or sultry Sancerre, but rather something to make a great martini with! After perusing the vast wall of potential libations, I came across a vodka that I had years ago, but could never find locally… Fig vodka. The decision was made, a fig martini it would be. I quickly raced home to try my hand at this fun little cocktail [it was after five… somewhere] and the flavors were sweet and refreshing and made me think this was worth the purchase! Stay tuned though for a revisit to the wine store in a future post… I will detail my favorites and give some background on them.

at a low simmer…
