Every Friday, Mike Augustyniak will be picking up a new cocktail recipe from a local mixologist. Throughout October, he’s getting his inspirations from Dustin House. This week’s selection: The Siberian Sunrise.
1.5oz of Orange vodka (preferably infused)
0.5oz of Cointreau
0.25oz of fresh lime juice
0.25oz of fresh blood orange juice
Splash of cranberry juice
Garnish: 1 Orange Slice
Shake well all ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Serve in a chilled martini glass. Garnish with an orange slice.
This drink reminded me of a cosmopolitan, with a fruity taste, but with a little more of a citrusy bite to it. It would be perfect to make on one of those final warm days in the fall.
Dustin House is the general manager of the Valley Tap House in Apple Valley, but will be opening a new Uptown Minneapolis vodka bar in early November called Hammer & Sickle.
