Ginger Hammertini

UPDATE TO THIS RECIPE: You can use any good vodka to make this cocktail and make things more festive by adding prosecco at the end in place of seltzer. It’s really great!!

Dana created this “healthy” cocktail for our Sip and Shop event at Hammertown Gt. Barrington a couple weeks ago and everyone loved it.  The main ingredients are both locally made:  Berkshire Mountain Distillers Ice Glen Vodka (made in Sheffield, MA) and ImmuneSchein’s Ginger Elixir or Ginger Turmeric Elixir which you can BUY ONLINE NOW (we also carry these elixirs in our stores).  Try this cocktail straight up in a martini glass and top with seltzer or on the rocks with a little extra seltzer.  (click here for more information about ImmuneSchein Elixirs and other recipes)

Put Vodka, Ginger Elixir and Lime Juice in a shaker with some ice (do NOT put in seltzer!)

Shake for 10-15 seconds

Either way, it’s totally delicious and refreshing!!
