About this Cocktail

I wanted to make it easier to start remembering hot to make my drinks. This is a simple stirred drink in a 4,3,2,1 method where you start with one spirit and from there you add 1/4 less of the next.

  • 1 oz Kaikouzo Soju
  • 3/4 oz Imperia Vodka
  • 1/2 oz Metté apricot Eau De Vie
  • 1/4 oz Cointreau
  • 2 dashes of Dr. Adam Elmegiram’s Teapot Bitters
  • 1 dash of simple syrup (just a dash)

Add all into a chilled mixing glass full of ice and stir. With every drink you make you’ll start refining your stirring technique. When I started, I was a subtle as a blender on max. It was ugly.

Strain into a smaller martini glass. Garnish with an orange twist.
