The Farmer’s Cocktail

08-Oct-2006
I’m on the mailing list for a couple PR firms here in town and received the following as part of a monthly update from one of them:

Summer may be over, but local gardens and Washington State Farmers Markets are still going strong, with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Not only is buying locally a great way to support our state’s farmers, it is ideal for getting the freshest, highest quality produce and the best flavor and nutrition. Get creative and experiment with some new cocktail recipes for yourself or a group of friends. The botanicals in high-quality, artisan spirits like Plymouth Gin complement the flavors in fresh fruits and vegetables for a pairing like no other. The following drink can be made with plums, in abundance at local Farmers Markets, grocery stores or maybe even out of your own garden.

Plymouth Plum-tini

The sweetness of fresh plums are enhanced by the warmth of cardamom, a spice at the heart of Plymouth Gin.
1.5 oz. Plymouth Gin
1 ripe plum
½ oz. fresh lemon juice
2 bars or spoonfuls of honey

Muddle plum with honey in the bottom of a shaker, add the Plymouth Gin and lemon juice and shake with ice. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with some slices of plum.

I thought it was an interesting twist on the "buy local" marketing you normally see!
