A Chinese New Year Cocktail Recipe: Fortunella

Whatever the year of the Sheep/Ram/Goat has to bring, this cocktail will prepare you for it - hopefully it's fortune, luck, and prosperity.  We named this cocktail Fortunella because that is part of the latin name for the kumquat tree, and because the root of the word is fortune which goes with Chinese New Year themes.




Fortunella Ingredients:
Kumquats (sliced), sugar, HDC Lime Vodka, Campari and Ice.

In a shaker, muddle 3-4 sliced Kumquats with 1 tsp sugar and 1.5 oz HDC Lime Vodka. Pour into a tall glass and fill glass 1/2 full of ice. Top with .75 oz Campari, stir. Top with more ice and enjoy!
