In a Sentimental Mood
after a sleepy, grey day, listening for hours
to the piano musings of Art Tatum.
And so I turned to my old flame......Vodka.
Did a quick infusion of lemon and Vodka. Really, with lemon zest and a smaller amount (8 ounces) of vodka, it takes no time for the spirit to garner that bright hue and flavor.
Next made an extra strength syrup of lemongrass and ginger.
Mixed one part of the Vodka with three quarters part of fresh lemon juice and one and a quarter part of syrup. Shook it up, poured it on the rocks and topped with charged water.
It'll put you right in the mood.
