Ginger Martini

Ginger-Cardamom Martini with Grapefruit
January 20, 2014
Ingredients

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1 (3-inch) piece of ginger, peeled and sliced thin
3 cardamom pods, smashed
2 oz gin
1/2 oz grapefruit juice
splash of lemon juice

Directions

Find yourself a bit parched, surrounded by desert sand, silky as it may be? Relief is only a few shakes away, thanks to this gin and juice combo.

Yield: 1 cocktail

Add sugar, water, ginger, and cardamom to a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring, until sugar has dissolved. Shut off heat, and set aside for 1 hour. Strain, and refrigerate in an airtight container until thoroughly chilled.

Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Add 1/2 oz simple syrup, gin, grapefruit and lemon juices. Shake vigorously, and pour into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a twist of grapefruit.
