Mastered the martini?
Up the ante this fall, and whip up a grilled martini—’cus liquid smoke is the next best thing to a fire pit.
Makes 1 servings
- 2 oz gin
- 1 oz dry white vermouth
- 2 drops liquid smoke
- 1/2 inch-wide strip lemon zest
How to make it
Combine the gin, vermouth, liquid smoke, and ice in a shaker, and stir vigorously.
Strain into a chilled martini glass. Hold the lemon zest shiny-side down a couple of inches above the martini. Squeeze to release the oils, then light a match and hold it under the zest to lightly char the peel. Drop the zest into the martini, and serve.
