corazon reposado tequila, dry vermouth, creme de violette, st germain, orange bittersThe ingredient list is robust. Tequila, vermouth and a double dose of liquors plus a dash of orange bitters; this shiny grey and purple hued martini seamlessly combines five ingredients for a remarkably clean tasting drink. The versatile liquors: Creme de Violette and St Germain play nicely together, lending their distinctly floral and sweet notes upfront. The dry vermouth subtly adds its bitterness into the mix and provides necessary balance. Then the tequila kicks in, exactly as you'd hoped it would for a final punch at the end. Order this gem the next time you find yourself bar side at Russel House Tavern.
