Fuzzy Martini

Not a real Martini (with dry vermouth). Just sayin'! But that aside, this is a pretty good cocktail in much the same spirit of the Martini. The recipe calls for three kinds of flavored vodkas: vanilla, peach and coffee. I am not someone who keeps flavored vodkas around; I flavor them myself, which I did in the case of the vanilla vodka. I happened to have two whiskies that are flavored, however. This changed the character of the original 90's era cocktail to something a little more pioneer-style with young whiskey notes on top of rich vanilla vodka. This cocktail had all the hallmarks of a craft drink, not some fake Martini.
  • 3 oz. vanilla flavored vodka (homemade infusion used)
  • 1/2 oz. coffee flavored vodka (MurLarkey Coffee Whiskey used)
  • 1 tsp. peach schnapps (1/2 oz. Bird Dog Peach Whiskey used)
  • peach slice
Combine liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the peach slice.
