DOUBLE LEMON PRESSE

Our go-to cocktail: this is a drink everyone loves. The refreshing taste of real lemons combined with muddled mint is perfect for every season.

We call this cocktail a Double Lemon Presse because it’s packed with citrus, two ounces of  TRU Lemon Vodka and one ounce of fresh squeezed lemon juice. It’s based on a classic Mint Drop cocktail but we’ve updated the taste with a nice Greenbar Distillery twist.

Serve with a colorful salad or bread and cheese.

Ingredients

  • 2 oz TRU Lemon Vodka
  • 1 oz Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 1 oz Simple Syrup
  • 1 handful Fresh Mint Leaves

PREPARATION

Combine all ingredients with ice and shake, shake, shake until your shaker tin goes frosty and the mint is broken up. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with extra fresh mint.

    TRU BLOODY MARY

    Not just for brunch! In its simplest form a Bloody Mary is just vodka and tomato juice. We like to think that this is one of the places where the savory flavors of TRU Garden vodka shine.Of course, you can mix it up a bit. Maybe you already have a favorite Bloody Mary mix or you like to make your own. We humbly recommend mixing fresh tomato juice with lime juice, worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, celery salt and cracked black pepper.The ratios for a Bloody Mary can also be tweaked to taste.  In this Bloody Mary recipe, we advocate 2oz of TRU Garden vodka to 6oz of mix. That will give you a nice long drink but we've seen equal measures or 2:1 used too.What we're saying is: the best Bloody Mary is really the one you make on the day. Live a little, customize what goes in the glass but stay true to TRU Garden vodka.Pair with any egg dish. Eggs Benedict or Eggs Florentine are the perfect accompaniment as the tomato juice cuts the richness of hollandaise sauce.

    THE GRIFFITH

    Officially LA's favorite cocktail, The Griffith is an acclaimed award winner. Created in 2014, it evokes the flavors of Los Angeles as it's deep and complex (like a Hollywood actor), fresh (like the breeze off Santa Monica Pier) and unforgettable (like the first time you land at LAX).The Griffith Cocktail is designed to work with freshly prepared food and is the perfect drink to hand your home chef while they prepare a masterpiece. If possible, use local lemons and cucumbers grown in season.You'll like The Griffith Cocktail because it's sweet and fresh with a little bit of a bite.  Here's Melkon's take on the drink: ‘Many great cities have signature cocktails. It's time for Los Angeles to create a drink to call its own, something that reflects the local culture that we can savor with friends and share with visitors.’

    GARDEN AFFAIR

    Created by Litty and Melkon back when Greenbar Distillery was far younger than it is now, this cocktail stands strong. It's the perfect savory cocktail and is a delicious match for rich food. Add as much spicy sauce as your taste buds like. Melkon, in particular, loves a couple more dashes than the rest of us!Pair with either your favorite deli foods or hearty stews and hotpots. The lightness of the cocktail will cleanse your palate during a meal.

    MELROSE MULE

    The trick to making a great mule is using FRUITLAB Ginger liqueur and soda water. You get the kick of real ginger without any unwanted aftertaste.We love pairing a Melrose Mule organic cocktail with a selection of rustic breads and deli fixings. The taste is strong enough to stand up to strong flavors yet refreshing enough to make it an easy-sipping drink :)

    FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH

    This is one smooth cocktail! We like to think it's chosen by the leading ladies in Bel Air but it can definitely be enjoyed by everyone.Using pure cranberry juice in a Fountain of Youth cocktail is key. Look for unsweetened 100% juice. It's now available in most stores and makes a huge taste difference. Plus, it's packed with lovely vitamins and antioxidants.Our version of this classic pairs TRU Lemon vodka with FRUITLAB Hibiscus liqueur for a rich fruit flavor that tastes clean and fresh. The addition of BAR KEEP Lavender bitters adds a certain je ne sais quois.Try pairing with a well-dressed Caesar salad.

    GREEN BLOODY MARY from @Chickologist

    Now and then you come across someone who really knows their spirits and Rachael Robbins (AKA @Chickologist) knows liquor better than most. This recipe comes from Rachael: she was facing a cold New York morning and needed the perfect brunch drink. She started with TRU Garden vodka and got to work making the best homemade green tomatillo salsa.Not for the fainthearted or anyone new to cocktailing, this is a tricky cocktail because the fresh Green Bloody Mary mix takes a little concentration but it's well worth the effort. We'll admit, we don't always go all out with the garnish but, if you have time to spare, a deviled egg and fried oyster makes the perfect pairing. Thanks again Rachael and @CapacityImages for the photo.Try this Green Bloody Mary with deep fried appetizers or your favorite brunch dish.
