Islay and Olive

Islay and Olive

I see you, dirty-martini drinkers. And I raise you this potent prize from Arkansas bartender Shaun Traxler. It’s a vodka martini— properly called the Kangaroo—gone savory with peaty Scotch and olives four ways. You’ll drop a few pitted green olives into your batch and let them linger, then garnish with some additional frozen ones to keep the mixture cool. Add a little brine and olive oil and you have a luxuriously silky drink, best served damn cold. Note that the olive oil will solidify if you let it hang out in the freezer, so it’s best to add it just before serving.

 

YIELD12 servings

 

INGREDIENTS

8 pitted green olives
1 ½ cups vodka
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons Islay Scotch (such as Laphroaig 10)
¾ cup dry vermouth (such as Dolin)
½ cup water
2 tablespoons olive brine
10 dashes orange bitters
Pinch fine sea salt

 

To serve:

1 ½ teaspoons olive oil
12 lemon twists
12 to 24 green olives (optionally frozen)

 

PREPARATION

At least 2 hours and up to 4 hours before serving, make the batch. Place olives in a 1-liter swing-top bottle. Use a small funnel to pour in vodka, Scotch, vermouth, water, and olive brine. Add bitters and salt, then seal, turning gently end over end to mix, and chill in freezer. (If you’d prefer to batch further in advance, refrigerate filled bottle, then place in freezer 2 hours or so before serving.)

Meanwhile, freeze additional olives for garnish, if desired. I like to place one in each divot of an empty ice cube tray to keep them separated.

To serve, add olive oil to cocktail mixture. Reseal and turn bottle gently to mix. Pour cocktail into chilled martini or Nick and Nora glasses. Express oils from a lemon twist over each cocktail and use twist as a garnish, along with a frozen olive or two.

YODA SODA WITH LIGHTSABER STRAWS IS AN EASY TO MAKE AND DELICIOUS DRINK RECIPE THAT IS PERFECT FOR ANY STAR WARS FAN!

Who’s going to the premiere of the new Star Wars movie? Hmmm. It might actually be easier to ask who isn’t going to the premiere, or at least who isn’t planning on seeing it in theaters. There’s a lot of hype around the new series of Star War movies, and from what I’ve heard, they’re going to be amazing. So why not take your experience to the next level with a Star Wars themed drink, like Yoda Soda?

But wait – I couldn’t just make a lemon-lime frozen soda type drink and call it good. No. This is a Yoda Soda, and Yoda, according to the Urban Dictionary, is “the most powerful Jedi to ever grace the order. His wisdom and knowledge of the force was unmatched. His skills with the lightsaber were only equaled by the strength of his force lightning.” Therefore, lightsaber straws were necessary.

These straws were super simple to make. I just picked up a box of colored straws at Target and used the green ones. Then I cut them to the right length for the glass by snipping the bendy part and some of the length off. The lights are little finger laser lights. You can find them on Amazon or even at the Dollar Store. The ends of the lights have a little cap on them that you twist off. If the straw doesn’t fit in the end, just make a small snip about 1/8 inch long on opposite sides of the straw, and then they’ll slide right over the end of the light.

Just stick your lightsaber straws in the drinks, top with some whipped cream, green sugar if you have it, and BAM! You have just made the perfect Yoda Soda.

These drinks are perfectly sweet and taste just like a virgin margarita. They are fantastic for Star Wars fans of all ages. If you wanted to make an adult-only version, just add a little or a lot of silver tequila. YUM!
