August 2009 - Drink of the Month

Mountain Berry Spritzer

This drink comes from the store "T" on Broadway near Fir Street (www.tealeaves.com)

First, make the flavoured or steeped vodka.  I will give you the recipe from "T" and then the recipe I used.

T Recipe:

Add 100 g of mountain berry tisane to a 750 ml bottle of vodka.  Let steep for 48+ hours - the longer the sweeter the infusion.  Strain the tea out using a strainer.

Dipsophilia Recipe:

I had 400 ml of vodka in a bottle, so decided to use that.  I added 10 teaspoons of the mountain berry tea to the 400 ml vodka and let steep for 48 hours. The colour was phenomenal! In fact, I would actually use less tea next time! It was very fruity, and good! But too much for a martini.








Fill glass with ice. Add 1 ounce vodka. Top with soda water. Enjoy! I also tried a lime wedge which was a nice addition.


1 ounce mountain berry vodka

splash dry vermouth

2 ounces cranberry juice

Shake, strain and serve in a martini glass. Not Dipsophilia tested. My Mountain Berry vodka was already very fruity and I didn't think adding cranberry juice would be necessary.
