“Plant A Tree Lemontini” Organic Cocktail Recipe
Not only is this organic drink fat-burning, a nice antioxidant and SUPER tasty, but by drinking it, you erase your carbon footprint for the day! Even better? Throw a party and for every bottle of Organic Tru vodka that is purchased, a tree is planted in the Rain Forest of Central America!
Plant a Tree Lemontini (serves 1)
1 ounce Organic Simple Syrup
2 ounces Tru Organic Vodka
Organic Sugar for the rim of the martini glass
Mint Sprig for garnish
Tools Needed: Cocktail Shaker, Muddler, Cocktail Strainer
First, prepare the Organic Simple Syrup: Pour 1/3 cup of water and 1/3 cup of Organic Sugar into a sauce pan. Bring to a boil, stirring continuously. Once the sugar has dissolved, remove from heat and let cool.
To make: Squeeze the juice of one medium size Organic Lemon into a cocktail shaker. Add 1 ounce Organic Simple Syrup. Add about 1 cup of ice to the shaker and pour 2 ounces of TRU Vodka over the ice. Cover and shake vigorously. Strain the contents into a martini glass.
*A nice touch is to add organic sugar along the rim of the martini glass. To do this, rub a lemon slice around the rim to “wet” it, then dip the glass into the organic sugar on a flat plate or surface.
Garnish with a mint sprig and lemon slice.
Organic Fit Bar Elements: Lemon juice is a natural fat-burner and also high in vitamin C, which is great for your immune system. If you own a juicer, it is wonderful to peel the lemon and juice it.
