Derrick Schommer: Welcome to Common Man Cocktails, I’m your host Derrick Schommer and today we’re going to do the Classic Ice Wine Martini. This ends our segment on ice wines because I’m out pretty much. So, what we’re going to do is the last to the ice wines is the Vidal Gold Inniskillin, Vidal Gold this is a 2006 I think it’s another one of those costly wines, I think that ones is about $70.00, $35.00 you can work your way down it $25.00 depending on what ice wine you can find. And were really good, I just kind of entertain the whole ice wine concept for this, we’re not mixing with lots of juices. We’re going to put a little Vodka so we’re going to do is one ounce of the ice wine, two ounces of Saint Petersburg Vodka and that’s it. This is what your ice wine typically looks like. It’s a nice gold in color like the golden apple color. Very sweet, super sweet the cool thing we’re going to do is I froze this ahead of time. We’ve got some frozen grapes here, its ice wine so you freeze up the grapes that would be your garnish inside of this here cocktail glass. So, you just drop them in. I'm thinking they’re going to sink I haven’t tried this recipe so that’s the theory. This is a stirring recipe so we’re all about to stir, let’s get our stir on why don’t we? We toss our ice in there got nice ice that rhymes. We’ll do one ounce of the Vidal ice wine, now the Vidal is a nice hardy grape for making ice wine we have an upcoming episodes in our podcast while interviewed PR Rep. for Inniskillin, he talks all about ice wine and how it’s made and several reason are cost so much and what you look for. It’s a really interesting, interesting interview. We’ll do two ounces of the St. Petersburg Vodka or a little less than two since I just spill it all over myself, here we go. And we’ll stir this approximately 30 seconds. I’m actually curious on what is going to be taste like because this Vodka is got some cool nuances to it, it’s not just clean and clear. That should do, yeah, yeah were getting there, on top of which we’ve got the cool ice and grapes the kind of really add to the flavor. So I’ll pour that in here or strain it. Here we go, now we could do one and that’s what one looks like so it’s very neat but typically it’s either going to be one or three. So, we’re just going to do all three just because I’ve got three- just freezing one grape seems kind of ridiculous. One is like a Martini but three is another lucky number, you never see two. Three olives, one olives, all your bigger thus they really take up space. If I have one those big juicy drink grapes that would have worked but I think I kind of looks little better now. There you go that’s there is the classic Ice Wine Martini, that’s me because it keeps the ice wine but there’s actually a little added dryness with the Vodka. I think there’s the heat because it is a little potent. I wouldn’t said boozy you know it’s not going to blow your head off but it’s definitely got more kick to it than the ice wine does. So, you got that going for it if you like a sweet drink but you also kind the like lean towards a little more potency you bring the vodka in. But it maintains the grace and elegance of the ice wine with the fix sweetness, nice thick attack yet it still got that little sharp edge on the end of the drink on the finish. So there you go, that is your Classic Ice Wine Martini. I’m your host Derrick Schommer checks this out on everydrinkers.tv and were teaching you how to drink.
