I had a ginger and lemondrop martini almost 4 years ago at a Cuban restaurant in San Francisco. I haven't seen it in any other restaurants or bars and thus was inspired to make my own infused vodka. In a few days, I will post the martini recipe & photo! Very excited to taste how it turns out.
1 small piece fresh ginger
A decent vodka (anything at the level of absolut or better is fine)
1 large glass container with lid (original vodka bottle is okay)
Wash lemons very well and dry with a paper towel. Cut off peel and remove white pith entirely, as this will become bitter in the vodka.
Peel ginger and cut into a few chunks.
Place ginger and lemon peel in container. Fill with vodka and cover.
Store in a dark place at room temperature, inverting the infusion several times every few days.
Strain and pour into decanter or bottle.
