Make a cocktail using vodka, gin, vermouth, and laurel.

It sounds like you’re in the mood for a drink that combines both vodka and gin with a sophisticated twist! With the ingredients you have in mind—vodka, gin, vermouth, and laurel—I’d suggest a variation on a classic martini with an herbal infusion of laurel. One recipe that blends vodka, gin, and vermouth harmoniously is the Vesper Dry Martini. While the original Vesper doesn't include laurel, you can add a touch of laurel to infuse an aromatic complexity. **Here's a suggested recipe:** Ingredients:

  • Dry gin (60ml)
  • Vodka (20ml)
  • Lillet Blanc (10ml) or White Vermouth (10ml)
  • Laurel leaves (1-2, fresh or dried to taste)
  1. Lightly muddle the laurel leaves in a mixing glass to release their aroma.
  2. Add the dry gin, vodka, and Lillet Blanc (or white vermouth) to the mixing glass.
  3. Fill the mixing glass with ice and stir well until the mixture is chilled (about 30 seconds).
  4. Strain the mixture into a chilled cocktail glass.
  5. Garnish with a single laurel leaf for an herbal finish, if desired.
Tasting Notes: The fusion of the dry gin and vodka creates a robust base, complemented by the Lillet Blanc or vermouth's aromatic and slightly sweet notes. The laurel infuses a unique, earthy herbal character that makes this cocktail stand out. Enjoy this sophisticated drink as a pre-dinner aperitif or during a relaxed evening.
