Smoking Embers Marteani
WE’LL NEVER GET COLD
Showing our hot, burning, support for the UK this year, it’s our Smoking Embers Marteani! We heard that James Newman enjoys a nice cuppa, so here’s the Mission Eurovision twist for 2021.
Not gonna lie, this is very strong and very dry. We love it, it’s like an Old Fashioned, but if it’s a bit much for you we suggest adding a half measure of simple syrup, and/or using sweet vermouth instead of dry.
STRENGTH: 5/5 / SWEETNESS: 1/5 / DIFFICULTY: Medium
1. PREP THE VODKA!
Put the vodka in a jar or other sealable container, and add the tea bags. We used about 500ml of vodka and three tea bags, this gave a really good smoky flavour, but play about with either ingredient to get the taste that you like! Leave to infuse for four hours.
Half fill your cocktail shaker with ice then add other ingredients
Strain and serve into a martini glass
We had some dried orange slices in the cupboard (thank you gin delivery service!) so garnished our marteani with that. You could try some orange peel, or a toasted marshmallow would be lovely!
