It’s Mixology Monday time again and this month Rumdood is hosting the event. Although, Rumdood is all about rum, he chose Ginger as this month’s Mixology Monday theme.
Having an almost full bottle of the amazing Ginger Liqueur Domaine de Canton on the bar, I seized upon this opportunity. After checking the Domian de Canton site, I found a plethora of drinks to try. It was hard to choose as they all looked tasty. I settled on the Strawberry Ginger Martini, it being the year of muddling fruit and all. The sweetness of the strawberries and the spicy ginger complement each other extremely well. Overall, this drink was easy, attractive and refreshing.
- 2 parts Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur
- 1 part vodka
- 2–3 strawberries
- Lemon or lime juice
Muddle the strawberries in a Boston Shaker with the juice of one lemon or lime wedge. Add 5–6 ice cubes, the vodka (or gin if that is you inclination) and ginger liqueur. Shake well and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a slice of strawberry.
