SOUR GRANNY 1 small Granny Smith apple, cored, thinly sliced

¾ oz (22 ml) fresh lime juice 1½ oz (45 ml) NÜTRL Vodka ½ oz (15 ml) Falernum *

Chill a martini glass in freezer for 5 minutes. Reserve 1 or 2 apple slices for garnish and toss rest of apple slices in a cocktail shaker with lime juice to prevent browning, then muddle thoroughly. Add vodka, Falernum and cubed ice and shake vigorously, then fine strain into chilled martini glass. Garnish with apple slices. * To make Falernum, to a blender, add 1½ cups (375 ml) water, 1 tsp (5 ml) cloves, 2 tbsp (30 ml) lime zest (about 10 limes), 4 tsp (20 ml) chopped ginger and 1 cinnamon stick. Pulse to chop ingredients, then add to a saucepan over medium heat and bring to 140 F (60 C), about 5 minutes. Add 1½ cups (375 ml) granulated sugar and stir to dissolve. Strain while hot, then add to a heatproof bottle and store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Falernum is also available online and at specialty stores.
