Out of Mind, from Holiday Cheer
Created by Pascaline Lepeltier, sommelier at seasonal and sustainable NYC restaurant Rouge Tomate, this holiday meal mixer uses FAIR Quinoa Vodka, an organic vodka that sources its quinoa from the Andean mountains of Bolivia and distills it in the Cognac region of France.
“This cocktail is not only beautiful to look at, but it’s made with ingredients that you would find in a typical holiday meal,” says Lepeltier. “It makes a perfect pairing for your holiday dishes.”
2 ounces FAIR Quinoa Vodka
2 ounces carrot puree (blend 6 ounces of cooked carrots with 2 ounces of carrot juice until smooth)
1⁄2 ounce house-made kaffir syrup*
1⁄2 ounce lime juice
1⁄2 ounce raw organic egg white
Mix all ingredients in a mixing glass. Dry shake, then shake with ice. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a zest of lime and a lime wedge.
*To make kaffir syrup, blend 3 or 4 fresh kaffir limes (found at specialty markets) with 4 ounces of agave (or simple) syrup. Steep for two hours, then strain.
