Today I am going to share my new cocktail called "Die Zitrone." I got a christmas bonus this year from my day job, and what did I do with it? First thing I did was stock up on booze for my home bar. Since, I have been on a cocktail recipe kick.
"Die Zitrone" is a wonderful refreshing drink that I have invented. It is not sweet, I'll warn you. But you can be sure to add sugar syrup if you like things sweeter.
Needed: 1oz whiskey (2tbsp), 2oz Dry Vermouth (4tbsp), 1 juice of a lemon, splash of sparkling water, twist of lemon to garnish
First, chill a tall glass in the freezer for 10 minutes. Add whiskey, vermouth, lemon juice, 3 cubes of ice into a cocktail shaker (mason jar) and shake well. Then, pour over ice in glass, and top off with sparkling water. If you are feeling fancy twist the peel of a lemon for a garnish.
Again, feel free to sweeten this up with powdered sugar or some sugar syrup. I like it sour you, you might like it sweet.
liebe Grüße, (with loving greetings)
P.S As you can tell I am a big whiskey fan! If you are interested in more of a wintery whiskey cocktail you can try out my Hot-Tottie recipe.
If you have hobby bar-tending friends or loved ones who may enjoy this post, I would be more than pleased if you shared this recipe with them.
