Yes, you heard that right, an asparagus cider cocktail. Finally, two of my favourite things have been combined!!
- 1 ½ ounces fines herbs-infused vodka (recipe below)
- ¾ ounce Cider
- ½ ounce lemon juice
- ½ ounce simple syrup
- Asparagus shoot or fresh herb sprig, for garnish (see notes for extra asparagus flavour)
Combine all ingredients in a tall glass. Fill three-quarters of the way with crushed ice and stir rapidly with swizzle stick or long spoon. Top glass with additional crushed ice. Garnish with asparagus shoot or herb sprig.
Fine herbs-infused Vodka
In large mixing glass, use muddler or wooden spoon to gently crush ½ tablespoon fresh chives, ½ tablespoon fresh parsley and ½ teaspoon fresh tarragon. Add 1½ cups vodka and infuse for 24 hours. Remove herbs, and strain infused vodka through coffee filter or cheesecloth. Store away from sunlight.
Note – for even MORE asparagus flavour, cut a stalk into pieces, muddle it, strain it and then add it at the start before the ice.
