Another "HPP Original."
I love Summer time, but I also have low-level anxiety about all the lemonade stands that pop-up around the neighborhood; all these little kids making you feel guilty unless you stop and buy their 25¢ watered-down lemonade. Okay, that doesn't exactly give me anxiety, but is it really that hard to make good lemonade?! Thinking about opening a stand of my own and whipping up some of these!
1 oz vodka
1 oz Ginger liqueur (one with a fresh, strong ginger BITE to it!)
1/2 oz full-strength turmeric drinking vinegar
3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
1/3 oz simple syrup
Garnish: lime wheel
Add all ingredients (except for tonic) to shaker and shake with ice until chilled. Strain into rocks glass and top with tonic water. Garnish with a lemon wheel.
The turmeric drinking vinegar I used is from PokPok– super tasty but really strong, so you don't need much. The type of ginger liqueur is also key. I used one made by New Deal Distillery here in Portland. Theirs is the best I've found so far!
