The classic martini plus the health benefits of green tea
Cocktail by Davide Segat
ISSUE No 6
A lighter, much more complex version of the classic dry martini, combining the pleasure of vodka and the healthy benefits of Genmaicha tea. The best of both worlds.
Genmaicha is a rich tea blend from Japan consisting of sencha, toasted rice, and popcorn. It has a great toasted flavor, which elevates the vodka.
50 ml (1.5 oz) vodka of your choice (we suggest Absolut Elyx)
20 ml (0.75 oz) Genmaicha Homemade Cordial
(1 g of Genmaicha, 100 ml of water, and 1 tablespoon sugar)
1 dash of saline solution (20% 20 g rock salt and 80 ml water)
Place all the ingredients in a mixing glass, add ice, and stir for fifteen seconds.
Strain into a coupette glass and garnish with a rice puff.
