Looking for a Black & White cocktail to match your timeless color-scheme (and not stain your dress)? Try this vanilla bean martini on for size! If you like it less sweet, skip adding the Sprite or cut back on the Vanilla Bean Simple Syrup.
Vanilla Bean Martini
Rimmer: 2 parts granulated sugar, 1 part vanilla powder
Shake with ice: 4 oz. Vanilla Vodka, 1 oz. Vanilla Bean Simple Syrup, splash of lime juice
Add: ½ oz. Sprite
Pour into rimmed glass, and place a small vanilla bean inside or a large one across the top of the glass.
Vanilla Bean Simple Syrup:
2 Cups Sugar
2 Cups Water
2 Vanilla beans sliced open with insides scraped into the pan (place the whole beans in as well)
Boil gently until sugar is completely dissolved. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge.
Cheers! Happy tasting!
