Celebuzz Cocktail Hour: Refresh Yourself with the Summer Thyme and Citrus Blossom

Celebuzz's 8 Favorite Things of the Week
These are some of our favorite things!

We are nearing the end of summer, but there are still many hot days to go.

There is no better way to beat the heat than with a refreshing cocktail. Here are two relatively simple cocktail recipes that should do the trick!

Citrus Blossom

Citrus Blossom

Created by Nola Woodall (Sweetwater Social)

Ingredients:
1.5 oz elit Vodka
1.5 oz Dolin Bianco
.75 oz Moscato d’Asti
Serve: Up
Garnish: Grapefruit peel.

Description: Citrus Blossom is the more feminine style martini. It’s made with a healthy amount of bianco vermouth to render the drink slightly lower proof. The Moscato d’Asti is intensely aromatic with floral and citrus blossom notes and it offers a mild effervesce.

Summer Thyme

Summer Thyme

Created by Anthony Bohlinger (Maison Premier, Seamstress NYC)

Ingredients:
2 oz. elit Vodka
.75 oz Sage Infused Dolin Dry Vermouth
2 dashes of celery bitters

Directions:
In a mixing glass add all ingredients and stir for 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a small sprig of thyme and sage attached to a mini clothespin. Express oils from a small piece of lemon over cocktail and discard.

Please remember to drink responsibly, and do not drink and drive!
