National Martini Day is Wednesday, June 19th, so Mark Yawn with Pelons Tex Mex stopped by Studio 512 to show us a twist on a local favorite, the Mexican Martini. This cocktail is called the Wild Flower. Yum!
The Wild Flower Cocktail is made with Dulce Vida Reposado, Naranja Liqueur, 1888 Olive Juice (made right here in Texas), ginger syrup, lime juice, Yellow Chartreuse and Crème de Violette. The cocktail is shaken and strained over Fat Ice (big ice cubes — but anything at home will do).
Wild Flower Cocktail:
- 3 (three) dashes of Serrano Tincture
- 1 (one) bar spoon of 1888 olive juice
- Ginger syrup
- .75 oz Lime Juice
- .25 oz Yellow Chartreuse
- .5 oz Creme de Violette
- .5 oz Naranja
- 1.5 oz Dulce Vida Reposado, 100 Proof
- Shaken and strained over Fat Ice.
