The martini is not just for James Bond anymore. Today there are literally thousands of variations on how to shake and stir your way to martini bliss. Here's one called the Gummy Bear Martini.
Things You'll Need
- Lemon Flavored Rum
- Southern Comfort
- Dry Vermouth
- Bar Sugar
- Gummy Bears
- Lemon Wedge or Slice
Rim your cocktail glass. Take your bar sugar and rim a chilled martini glass. Do this by taking a lemon slice and wiping it along the edge of the glass. This will moisten the glass, then dip into the sugar. Shake off any additional sugar.
Combine ingredients. In a shaker, combine 4 parts lemon flavored rum, 2 parts vodka, 1 part Southern Comfort, 1/2 teaspoon of dry vermouth and a dash of lemon juice.
Add ice to the shaker, and cap the top.
Shake, shake, shake. Shake the drink for at least 30 seconds to mix the flavors.
Pour the drink. Using the strainer, pour the drink into your chilled, rimmed glass. Using the standard shot glass for measuring, this makes 2 Gummy Bear Martinis.
Sprinkle a few Gummy Bears into your drink. They will add a festive quality to your drink.
