the CITRICA

 

2 oz. OOLA Citrus Vodka⠀⠀⠀⠀
1 oz. Fresh lime juice⠀⠀⠀⠀
.25 oz. Sekanjabin (Iranian Mint Vinegar Syrup)*⠀
2 dashes Scrappy's Grapefruit bitters⠀⠀
 

Shake all ingredients over ice. Strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a sprig of lemon verbena.

 

 

Sekanjabin can be purchased at Middle Eastern grocery stores, or you can make it at home:

*In a small pot over medium-high heat whisk together 2 cups sugar with one cup water until sugar is dissolved. Let syrup boil together for 10 minutes, then add ½ cup white wine vinegar. Reduce heat to medium and cook until syrup thickens, about 20-30 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in one cup fresh spearmint. Remove mint when syrup has cooled. Refrigerate, covered, for up to 1 month.
