Petrossian Caviar Cube Tsar Cocktail

Caviar and cucumber are a natural pairing. Caviar, cucumber, and vodka — even better. This cocktail, inspired by Petrossian's revolutionary Caviarcubes, is an elegant, fresh take on a martini. The pressed caviar adds a nice touch of salt and richness to the drink, and makes an eye-catching garnish for a cocktail party.

Ingredients

  •  3 ounces cucumber vodka, preferably Crop Organic
  • Dash of dry vermouth
  • Cucumber shavings, cut lengthwise, preferably from a hothouse cucumber
  • Ice cubes
  • Petrossian Caviarcube

Directions

Vigorously shake liquid ingredients together with ice in a cocktail shaker.

Strain into a chilled martini glass, and add the strips of cucumber (using a mandolin to get precise cuts is best).

Garnish with a Caviarcube and thin slice of cucumber on a toothpick.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
