Cheers! I mean, Happy Friday!
There is one embarrassing fact I need to admit. I had a cocktail as early as 10 am. That wasn’t a weekend brunch. Indeed, that was Tuesday. Or Wednesday. I don’t really remember.
However, I had a serious reason. How would I know that lilac and dry vermouth would work well together? And it worked! Also, in my excuse, I needed to sample just a little bit, maybe a teaspoon. I might or might not have had the remaining cocktail later, around the lunchtime. As you can see, that was a small shot to be concerned. But the rest of that day was quite enjoyable, I must also admit! :)
When I made this Lilac Syrup, I had few ideas on what to make with it, and I did want a fancy cocktail. In fact, I have never had a cocktail idea before on the blog, so that’s my debut.
Lilac Martini Vermouth Cocktail
Lilac Martini Vermouth Cocktail is a simple yet fancy, fresh, and delicate summer drink. It’s a sweeter kind of cocktail with a lovely subtle floral taste. Since we didn’t have any other spirit rather than dry Martini Vermouth, I didn’t have any room for an experiment. Luckily, it turned out fabulous!
By the way, please don’t pay attention to the sugar rim – I need to practice more often :)
Ingredients for the Cocktail
You will need only few ingredients:
- Lilac Syrup
- Dry (Extra Dry) Martini Vermouth
- Ice, crushed
- Lime juice (or lemon juice) + for garnish
- Few blueberries, for garnish
The ration is simple. 1 part of Lilac Syrup to 2 parts of Dry Martini. In addition, 2 or 3 parts of ice and few drops of lime juice. However, as always, that’s up to you. Play with the ratios adjusting it to your liking by adding less or more of the syrup, martini, or lime juice.
So I hope you like this Lilac Martini Vermouth Cocktail, and you will give it a try soon! If you make it, let me know in this post or send me an Instagram message or share you photos adding the hashtag #havocinthekitchen.
Cheers to Friday and the weekend!
