Many months ago, we posted a Mushroom Vodka infusion. For the most part, that infusion has been sitting in a mason jar doing nothing… until now.
A handful of readers gave some great cocktail suggestions, and a simple drink with orange bitters sounded great.
Maple Mushroom Martini
2 oz. Mushroom Infused Vodka
3/4 tsp maple syrup
5-6 dashes Orange Bitters
1/2 TB fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 dash aromatic bitters
Mix all of the above ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice.
This drink has the flavor of the mushroom, with a touch of sweetness from the maple, balanced with the tart lemon juice and bitters. In all, I think this was pretty delicious! I wouldn’t mind having another…
