Orange Honey Basil Olive Oil Martini

This recipe is the perfect example of how good quality first ingredients can take something simple to an extraordinary, flavourful creation. We are using a few simple basic ingredients that complement each other perfectly. The orange adds a citrusy base along with the cointeau, the basil leaves give that herbal freshness that balances the sweetness of the syrup while the olive oil adds a rich depth and complex body to the drink. We can’t think of a better way to say goodbye to the usual, outdated cocktails and introduce new and existing drinks to our guests!


Ingredients

  • 2 orange segments 
  • 5 fresh basil leaves plus extra for garnishing 
  • 6 oz premium vodka 
  •  1 oz dry vermouth 
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  •  ½ oz honey 
  • ¼ oz extra virgin olive oil 

Instructions

Muddle the orange segment with basil leaves in a mixing cup. Add the vodka, Cointreau, vermouth, honey, olive oil, and ice, and shake well. Use a mason jar if you don’t have a shaker. Strain into a martini glass and add a drop of olive oil on the top as you garnish with a few extra basil leaves.
