Russian Rose

Another Russian cocktail. I might even want to re-name it the Russian Ros-e because of the pink color and the wine-like flavor.

Rather than buy strawberry vodka, I made an infusion with fresh strawberries. These berries turned white and leached their color into the vodka. They also absorbed vodka and became potent snacks.

This is the first drink I'm experimenting with Trader Joe's dry vermouth. It lacks character, but that's ok for these purposes. I'm finding that you can skimp on your dry vermouths, but for sweet vermouth, get Italian or good French ones.
  • 3 oz. strawberry infused vodka
  • 1/2 oz. dry vermouth
  • dash grenadine
  • dash orange bitters (Hella used)
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
