Pomegranate Ginger Fizz

Cocktail

2 oz Tenure Vodka

2 oz grapefruit juice

3 oz pomegranate juice

2 oz honey ginger syrup

Juice of ½ a lime

Ginger beer (Tenure prefers Fever Tree)

Garnish with pomegranate seeds and mint sprigs

 

Honey Ginger Syrup

½ cup honey

1 inch fresh ginger chopped

Bring 1/2 cup water, the honey and ginger to a boil over high heat. Once boiling simmer, 1-2

minutes and then remove from the heat. Strain out the ginger then let cool before use.

 

Fill shaker with ice. Add the pomegranate juice, grapefruit juice, lime juice, syrup, and vodka.

Shake well to combine and then top with ginger beer. Garnish with pomegranate seeds and mint sprigs

 

Fig & Honey

Cocktail

1.5 oz Tenure Vodka

1 1/2 tbsp fig puree

1/2 tsp honey (or more to taste)

2 oz ginger ale

2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

 

Fig Puree

1 cups fresh figs, rinsed and halved

.5 tbsp sugar

2 tsp filtered water

1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

Combine ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth.

 

In a cocktail shaker, combine fig puree and honey. Mix with a spoon until blended. Add

Tenure vodka, lemon juice, ice and shake well. Top with ginger ale. Start with 1/2 tsp honey to

enhance the natural sweetness, and add more to taste if you need it. Strain into a chilled

cocktail glass. Garnish with two fresh fig quarters on a skewer, and/or coat them in sugar.

 

White Out

2 oz Tenure Vodka

.75 oz cream

.5 oz crème de cacao

3 to 4 dashes Angostura bitters

Freshly grated nutmeg, for sprinkling

1 star anise, for topping

 

Shake together Tenure Vodka, cream, creme de cacao, and bitters vigorously with ice in a

cocktail shaker. Strain into a chilled glass. Sprinkle with nutmeg and float star anise.

 

Tenure’s Clover Club (A twist on a classic)

Cocktail

3 oz Tenure Vodka

1 oz raspberry syrup

1 oz fresh lemon juice

1 egg white

For the garnish: lemon twist, fresh raspberries

 

Add Tenure Vodka, raspberry syrup, lemon juice, and egg white to a cocktail shaker without ice.

Shake for 15 seconds. Add the ice to the cocktail shaker. Shake again for 30 seconds. Strain the

drink into a cocktail glass; the foam will collect at the top. Garnish with a lemon twist or fresh

raspberries.

 

Raspberry Syrup

6 oz fresh raspberries (approx. 1 regular container)

1 cup water

1 cup sugar

Add raspberries to sauce pan. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a medium

simmer and let the raspberries cook for about 20 minutes. Skim any foam that rises to the top.

 

After about 20 minutes, the raspberries will have lost most of their color and the water should

be deep pink/red in color. Remove from heat. Strain the raspberry liquid through a fine mesh

strainer into another clean pot, separating the solid berries from the liquid. DO NOT press down

on the solids to extract more juice; it’s tempting, but doing this will make your raspberry syrup

cloudy.

 

Once the raspberry liquid has been strained, discard the solid berries. Add 2 cups of sugar to

the raspberry liquid. Bring back to a boil, stirring frequently to dissolve the sugar into the syrup.

Let the syrup simmer for 5 minutes till the sugar is completely dissolved, skimming any

additional foam that rises to the top. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.

Cider Martini

2 oz Tenure Vodka

1 oz Cointreau

1 oz fresh lemon juice

2 oz fresh apple cider

Lemon twist & brandied cherries for garnish

 

Add Tenure Vodka, Cointreau, lemon juice, apple cider & ice into a cocktail shaker. Shake until

the shaker is frosting over and feels cool to the touch. Strain into coup glass and top w/ lemon

twist & brandied cherry

 

Cranberry Clementine

Cocktail

2 oz Tenure Vodka

1.5 oz rosemary citrus simple syrup

3 oz unsweetened cranberry juice

1 small clementine

Top w/ club soda OR sparkling wine

Fresh cranberries & rosemary for garnish

 

Muddle the clementine in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Add ice, Tenure vodka, simple syrup,

and cranberry juice, then give it a good shake. Strain into a glass filled with ice, then top with

club soda or sparkling wine. Garnish with a rosemary sprig and a few fresh cranberries.

 

Rosemary Clementine Syrup

1 cup water

1 cup granulated sugar

4 large rosemary sprigs

Peel from 2 clementines

 

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring up to a simmer (but do not boil). Once

the sugar has completely dissolved, turn off the heat and let steep for at least one hour. Strain,

then let cool completely.
