Getting A Bite Out of Vodka– Ginger Martinis

Courtesy of a friend, PR Whiz, Greg Brooks who recently spent a lot of time in Sweden and all sorts of places since August, he was relating to me that he almost never drinks martinis but had one in recent days that was really tasty and unique– a Ginger Martini.
He couldn’t figure out the recipe nor did he ask for one when he had it. He thought that the vodka was Ginger Vodka which was a new one on me. (Anyone know of a brand that features that flavor? If so, email me!)
Being an amateur mixiologist, I emailed him back and said I could come up with one which involved adding ginger root to your favorite vodka and let it sit for a couple weeks. (this is not for making a ginger martini today!). The longer it steeps, the sharper the ginger “bite”. I then suggested mixing it with a bit of ice and grated ginger root and since it was about 6 AM I wasn’t thinking of a mixer for the martini but something with serious alcohol kick– more like a sipping martini, not one you could toss back.
Greg went farther with my riff and found a website that features the recipe for this enchanting brew. Turns out people drink them in summer. I think you could do this in fall or winter for holidays if you took the sweet & sour down a bit and added a hint of brown sugar to it for a “gingerbread” taste. Here’s the video that tells you how to make the Ginger Martini
