Essential Liquor #30
Our last drink in the 30 Essentials series is the Summit, a bright spicy little number that is cheerful enough to bring in the New Year as well as anything I can think of. It takes a bit of preparation, but it's worth it.
1 peel of lime
4 thin slices of fresh ginger or a dash of powdered ginger
1 1/2 ounces of Martell VSOP
2 ounces of freshly-squeezed lemonade
In a tulip glass or snifter, muddle a lime peel and ginger slices (or powder) with a splash of Martell. Add four ice cubes, then the Martell and lemonade. Stir. Garnish with lime twists and/or cucumber peel.
