I just read this and I felt compelled to share it with you. Mike Krawiec, a co-owner of Sweet Afton bar in Astoria, Queens, has come up with an oatmeal martini to serve during his weekend brunch.
First, infuse Tito's vodka (made in Texas) with rolled oats for five hours. Strain the infusion through cheesecloth four times and you have oatmeal flavored vodka. Then add organic (of course) maple syrup and a raisin puree (boiled down raisins and brown sugar). Now shake vigorously with ice and strain into your martini glass. Throw in a few raisins instead of olives.
Result, kind of a brown oatmeal looking thing with a bit of puree sediment that is a little on the sweet side.
To each their own, but I think I will stick with Bloody Marys.
