Yesterday we met Tammy Abney, bartender and serial hugger at Mastro's City Hall. Today she shares with us the recipe for the Dream Berry, a martini she says has been very popular this summer.
"It's really good, very refreshing, Abney says. "It's a little bit sweeter than most drinks, but not too sweet. A lot of the girls love it."
2 oz. Ciroc Red Berry Vodka
1 ½ oz. Triple Sec
Splash sweet and sour
Splash Monin strawberry puree
3 lemon wedges
How to make it:
Sugar the rim of a martini glass and set aside. In an ice-filled shaker, combine vodka, triple sec, sweet and sour, and strawberry puree. Squeeze the lemon wedges into the shaker and throw them in as well. Shake well and strain into the glass. Garnish with a strawberry.
