“The Lush.”

This is a primo martini.
It’s called The Lush and I had it last weekend.
So yummy!
Very simple:

Raspberry Vodka

I asked the bartender for something similar to a Cosmo and this is what he recommended. I hadn’t heard of Tuaca but it was gooood! The bartender described it as a caramel colored vanilla based liqueur. I had never tasted either ingredients before so I was game. It was made in front of me so I can only tell you amounts by what I saw.

Fill a standard mixing glass with ice. Pour the vodka 2/3rds from the top of the glass. Fill the rest of the way with the Tuaca. Shake and pour. Serve with a lemon twist and a chunk of dry ice.

Such entertainment!
I am a sucker for dry ice in a cocktail.
I just love the fog and the tiny perfect circles that float up into the air.

Enjoy the weekend! Cheers!

    Tuaca put many a friend under the table in our early married years…watch out for that stuff! Hmmm…maybe you HAVE had some before???

  4. Sounds great. Lately I ( who has always been a vino girl) been noticing that good parties start off with a “special” cocktail…
    I might adopt this one.
    Enjoy the weekend 🙂

  5. Sounds good. Have a great weekend!

  6. Mmmm…thanks for the recipe. We love Tuaca but haven’t had it in a martini. We drink it in hot cider when we go out west skiing. Verrrry good:-)

  7. Sounds yummy!

  8. It sounds wonderful, but I’m no mixologist. Is there some place I can get one when we go to Santa Monica? I’d love to try one!
