Fenneltini (Original Recipe)

The flavor of fresh fennel is unlike most other root flavors like licorice or anise. It is more subtle and vestigial, a good quality to have in a Martini. I've thought this for some time, but now I was able to make this drink a reality with fennel fronds and Don Ciccio and Figili Finnocchietto liqueur. It is sweet and fresh tasting, just like the fronds. You can experiment and try gin with this cocktail, but I rather prefer the clean taste of vodka as the background for a drink that already has a lot going on.
  • 2 oz. vodka (MurLarkey Divine Clarity used)
  • 1/2 oz. dry vermouth (Carpano dry used)
  • 1/2 oz. Don Ciccio and Figili Finnocchietto 
  • fennel frond
Combine liquid ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the fennel frond.
