The Sour Daffodil

Well, Easter is upon us, and in western Oregon there are daffodils everywhere.  It may be a little too much for some of us so let’s pucker up a bit and enjoy a festive, yet slightly sour drink.  We strongly suggest using Limoncello, another great Oregon product.

French Martini

How to Make one

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 oz of Chambord
  • 1.5 oz of vodka
  • 2.0 oz of pineapple juice

Directions: Add the vodka, Chambord, and pineapple juice. It won’t seem like a lot, but that’s okay! Shake the ingredients for at least 15 seconds; when shaken, the froth from the pineapple juice adds volume to the drink. Next, strain into chilled martini glasses, add blackberries for garnish and enjoy!
