Watergate Coffee

One ounce Coffee Liqueur
One ounce Orange Liqueur

Combine in your coffee mug.

Top with hot coffee and whipped cream.

The orange goes unexpectedly well with the coffee.

“Wet” Vodka Martini

Vodka MartiniShake with ice:

  • 3 ounces of vodka
  • 1 ounce of Extra Dry Vya Vermouth
  • Strain into a chilled martini glass.

    I like to garnish with a skewered olive, cocktail onion and a Tomolive (pickled green tomato). I call it a “Triple” or “Garnir de Trois.” It’s very much worth trying.

    This martini has what many would consider a shocking quantity of Vermouth but the truth is that most Vermouth tastes awful. Vya Vermouth is made by Quady and is quite lovely. If you sniff your current vermouth it will probably make you gag.
