There’s more than crocodiles to fear in the swamp tonight – watch out for Swamp Thing! This cocktail falls more on the trick side of Halloween’s famous proposition. Despite it’s “murky” appearance, this cocktail is light and floral. Headlined by TOPO Distillery’s Piedmont Gin, this martini is complimented by the sweet tanginess of green grapes and elderflower liqueur. Who knew a trip through the mucky muck could be so delicious?
- 2 cup sparkling white grape or apple juice
- 6 oz. TOPO gin
- 2 oz. St. Germain liquor
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 cup seedless green grapes
1. To make a batch of Swamp Thing cocktails, begin by rinsing and drying the grapes. Using a paring knife, cut the grapes in half and divide across four martini glasses.
2. Fill a martini shaker with ice and pour in the gin, St. Germain (or any other elderflower liqueur) and the lemon juice. Shake vigorously to chill and then pour equal amounts in the glasses. Top each glass with chilled sparkling white grape juice and serve immediately.
