President Obama's cocktail of choice is rumored to be a classic vodka martini. Party planner to the stars and host of WE TV's My Fair Wedding David Tutera gives us his recipe for the perfect Obama-tini.
You will need:
-3 oz. vodka
-a dash of salt
-lemon twist, for garnish
Pour 3 oz Premium vodka into a shaker with crushed ice.
Add a dash of salt and shake vigorously to chill until very cold.
Strain into a chilled martini glass and add a lemon twist (Tip: heat the lemon twist slightly over a candle to intensify the flavor) or a stuffed olive for garnish.
In the mood for something a little more festive? Well, why not try a cucumber lime saketini:
-2 oz. cold sake
-1 oz. cucumber juice
-1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
-splash of simple syrup
-lime slice, for garnish
Pour all of the ingredients except the lime into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a slice of lime.
