Eucalyptus Martini

Matthew Kelly/Supercall

If your idea of ultimate relaxation is a steamy bath and a chilly cocktail, this Martini is the perfect solution to your relaxation needs. Flavored with head-clearing, aromatherapeutic eucalyptus, this frothy, sour sip is balanced and refreshing. “The inspiration came from the classic White Lady,” says Humberto Marques, owner of Curfew Cocktail Bar in Copenhagen. “The eucalyptus syrup turned out to be a perfect compliment to the gin, along with the other citrus elements in the recipe.” He also uses the syrup to add a fresh burst of flavor to other classic cocktails like the Mojito and Mint Julep.
