Created not so long ago in Seattle, Washington by the previous owners of Mona’s Bar & Grill (Tito Class and Annette Serrano) this cocktail was brought to the attention of the world by Robert “Drinkboy” Hess. You can watch a video of him making one here.
If you like citrus flavored drinks, but don’t necessarily want all the calories of using juice and simple syrup, this is a pleasant alternative. A perfect drink for a warm afternoon, it is both simply elegant and easy to prepare. Think of this as a beginner’s Martini.
1.5oz citrus vodka
0.5oz lillet blanc
Garnish: lemon twist
Stir with ice and strain into chilled cocktail glass. Add lemon twist.
