A good, interesting and unique cocktail is hard to find. But today we have for you one that fits the bill nicely.
I found this one online via the green and eco page at Allptop and had to take a peek and see what it was about. It didn’t disappoint. The martini itself looks divine, the recipe looks easy enough, but the story is equally great.
Essentially Shawna is the blogger and face behind the Shawna Coronado blog and in her story she briefly mentions that she was at an Italian bar with a friend when the bartender came up to her and asked “what would you like for a drink?” and she basically said to him – Surprise Me! And surprise her he did. Below is the recipe for the Shawna Martini he made just for her.
This makes the green and eco cut here on Keetsa because she used Prairie Organic Gin for the win!
The Shawna Martini Recipe –
- Organic Gin– 1 oz.
- Grapefruit Bitters – A few dashes
- Blood Orange Juice – a cup or so
- Pomegranate Sugar for the rim
Throw all the lovely ingredients in a shaker. Shake well. Rim a glass with sugar using water or a little juice. Strain ice out as you pour into a sugar-rimmed martini glass.
