Imbibing Mr. Boston: Bordeaux Cocktail

IMG_4591-800Created 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.

Bordeaux Cocktail
1.5oz citrus vodka
0.5oz lillet blanc
Garnish: lemon twist

Stir with ice and strain into chilled cocktail glass.  Add lemon twist.
