Prepping for the Pope

As Pope Francis makes his U.S debut, us Philadelphians are doing all we can to prep for the madness that this weekend will bring.  So I started thinking, what better way to celebrate the Papal Visit then to make a couple drinks and cheers to his Pope-ness himself.  This weekends Holy Conncotion features my Heritage Distilling Ginger Vodka, this awesome Blood Orange Martini mix I picked up from Burlington Coat Factory { did you know they have an awesome Gourmet Food section in store? Go check it out! } and a bottle of Ayala’s Herbal Water from Wegmans.

I have tried a wide variety of Vodka’s, but never anything in the Ginger realm so I decided to take a chance on flavors.  Blood Orange has a super strong bitter flavor that I hoped would pair well with the Ginger.  I also added a splash of the Lemongrass Mint herbal water to bring out the earthy taste Ginger tends to have.

For the PERFECT Herbal martini :

Add 1 shot Heritage Distilling Ginger Vodka

A 1/2 Cup of Blood Orange Martini Mix

A 1/4 Cup of Lemongrass Mint Herbal water

Mix it all up

Adorn with a Blood Orange Slice

ENJOY!

Even if the Pope isn’t visiting your city, raise a glass in the air and toast to the Big Man visiting us here stateside!
