“I need a vacation,” said everyone across America. The holidays are over. It’s cold. And Netflix needs to step its game up. Suffice it to say that people are about fed up this time of year. While it would be great to jet over to the tropics for a week or so of fun in the sun, not everyone’s that lucky. Well, what’s the second best option to a week in paradise? Booze! Specifically the “Take Me To The Tropics Martini,” I created in the Lushworthy Lab.
The “Take Me To The Tropics Martini” is tart, fruity bliss, thanks to a combination of Deep Eddy Lemon Vodka, Campari, and fresh lime juice. To bring down all that tartness, I added a bit of honey. Simple syrup can also be used instead.
Check out the full recipe below, and I’ll see you in paradise. Cheers!
1.5 oz. Deep Eddy Lemon Vodka
0.5 oz. Campari
0.5 tbsp. Fresh Lime Juice
0.5 tbsp. Honey
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with lime wedge.
Do you guys mind it if I get my brag on for a hot second? Much appreciated. A few years back, I had the opportunity to visit Le Logis as part of an immersion trip with Grey Goose. Le Logis is the French manor brand home for Grey Goose, and it’s located in the Cognac region of France. Given that Le Logis is in fact a French Manor in Cognac, it’s absolutely divine. During the time I spent there, we were treated to exquisite meals that were created on site and enjoyed lots of, you guessed it, Grey Goose. It was there that I was introduced to my favorite Grey Goose cocktail, Le Fizz.
Oh crap, I forgot that I said that I would only brag for “a hot second.” Well, this exclusive experience is no longer super exclusive. Grey Goose will offer guest experiences at Le Logis from August 4 – 6 and August 25 – 27 of this year. According to a press release, “The GREY GOOSE Le Logis Summer Open House will offer guests a specially curated journey that explores what lies behind the French luxury vodka brand with a unique, two–day itinerary.”
All of this of course comes with a cost, and it’s a pretty penny. The trip costs $1,800 per person and includes “return luxury airport transfers from Bordeaux and Angouleme, two nights B&B in a single, twin or double bedroom, all meals cooked by an in-house chef, expertly crafted GREY GOOSE cocktails prepared by an on-site mixologist, soft drinks, snacks, tours and experiences.”
