Drinking more with his eyes and head than his palate, The Partner declared these tasty and had 2 rounds, which was about all even I could stomach of these. But as an aperitif, that’s appropriate, I believe.
An interesting exercise would be to mix up a couple of H & M’s version to see how they compare. Then maybe one from a local establishment. Perhaps episode 2 of He Shot-She Shot? We’ll see.
2 oz. Buddha’s Hand vodka*
¾ oz. Cointreau
¾ oz. lime juice
½ oz. cranberry juice
¼ oz. simple syrup
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with an orange twist.
*: We didn't have any Buddha's Hand vodka, so we used Ketel Citroen.
