Haiku Cocktail Instructions

The Haiku Cocktail is a refreshing drink that combines the flavors of citrus, ginger, and mint. It is named after the traditional Japanese form of poetry, known for its simplicity and elegance. This cocktail follows suit with its clean and crisp taste.

To make a Haiku Cocktail, you will need a few simple ingredients and a shaker. Begin by muddling fresh mint leaves in the bottom of the shaker. This will release the essential oils and bring out the vibrant flavors of the herb.

Next, add 2 ounces of your favorite citrus vodka to the shaker. The citrus flavor pairs perfectly with the mint and adds a zesty kick to the cocktail. If you don't have citrus vodka on hand, you can use regular vodka and add a splash of fresh lemon or lime juice.

Add a splash of ginger liqueur to the shaker. The ginger adds a subtle heat and depth of flavor to the cocktail. If you don't have ginger liqueur, you can use ginger syrup or a few slices of fresh ginger instead.

Finally, fill the shaker with ice and shake vigorously for about 30 seconds. This will chill the cocktail and combine all of the flavors together.

Strain the cocktail into a chilled glass and garnish with a sprig of fresh mint. The Haiku Cocktail is best enjoyed on a warm summer evening, but it can be enjoyed any time of year. The crisp and refreshing flavors make it a versatile drink that can be enjoyed on its own or paired with a variety of foods.

Next time you're in the mood for a light and refreshing cocktail, give the Haiku Cocktail a try. Its simple yet elegant flavors are sure to impress.

Best served in a Old-Fashioned Glass.
