A bunch of Experimentations in Libations

6/7/06

So, I'm in love with the $.99 sparkling Italian mineral water called "Blue" from Trader Joe's. Today I made the following:

Mojito

chopped frent mint leaves

1 tbs sugar

1 tbs lime flavored mineral water

and also

1 jigger light rum

ice

Mineral water

In a small bowl, mash the mint into the sugar mixture to make a minty syrup. Strain the syrup into a glass. And 1 jigger of light rum, ice and then fill up the glass with more mineral water. Stir. Add one or two more small mint leaves for garnish.

Lemon Thyme Vodka

4 leaves of lemon thyme, finely chopped

1 jigger of vodka

ice

lemon mineral water

Add the thyme and vodka to a glass. Stir. Add ice then fill the rest of the glass with water. Stir again. Serve.

Fizzy Mary (a sister to Bloody Mary)

4 finely chopped lemon thyme leaves

1 jigger of vodka

Ice

Tomato juice

Lemon mineral water

Add the thyme and vodka to a glass. Stir. Add ice. Fill glass 2/3 high with mineral water, fill the glass the rest of the way with tomato juice. Stir & serve.
