Toasting Mother Earth With Infused Organic Vodka
Solage Calistoga really knows how to celebrate Earth Day, in addition to a fat donation to the Napa Valley Vine Trail and planting a tree for every Facebook fan, the resort’s SolBar has dedicated a special cocktail featuring all organic ingredients, called Toast to Gaia and created by somm Bradley Wasserman, which will be served throughout the month.
So pedal yourself over to SolBar and grab one while you can. After that, here’s the recipe so you can make them at home:
Toast To Gaia
1.5 oz. fennel infused Square One vodka
1/2 oz. lime juice
1/4 oz. simple syrup
1 barspoonful rhubarb-orange marmalade
Combine the first four ingredients in a mixing glass, add ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a rocks glass over ice. Top with ginger beer and 3-5 drops ginger tincture. Garnish with lime zest (and optionally, just a sprig of the fennel plant).
Cheers, Mother Earth.
Best served with a chaser of Maggot Brain (in our opinion).
