Mixology Monday V
Jonathan from Jigger the Handle is hosting this month's Mixology Monday and the theme is Lemon.
Looking through the bar turned up two lemon based spirits
Absolut Citron (which is flavoured with lemon, lime and lemon peel) and Limoncino Romanoli - an Italian Lemon liqueur. So it's only right that I made two cocktails.
The first cocktail comes from one of my favourite mixologists Hayden Wood - Lemon Vanilla Fizz
For 1 drink:
1 vanilla pod
2 lemon leaves
60ml Limoncino Romanoli
soda water, to top
Muddle the lemon leaves & half the vanilla pod in a little dash of Limoncello, then strain into glass. Add crushed ice and the remaining Limoncello. Top with soda water, stir and garnish with the left over vanilla pod.
The second, involves both spirits to make a Lemon-tini
45ml Absolut Citron
15ml Limoncino Romanoli
Place ice, Absolut and Limoncino in cocktail shaker - shake and strain into martini glass. Garnish with a curl of lemon rind.
Both drinks are highly refreshing and perfect for those hot summer days.
