Cocktails & Apéritifs, Essensia, Vya Extra Dry, Winter

The warm spiciness of coriander-infused Essensia Orange Muscat balances nicely with the cool, herbaceous Vya Extra Dry Vermouth in this holiday cocktail recipe. Brandy gives it a backbone. A delicious original by Dana Fares in Chicago.


1 oz. Vya Extra Dry Vermouth
1 oz. Essensia coriander curaçao
1 oz. Brandy
½ oz. Fresh lemon juice
Garnish: lemon peel


Essensia coriander curaçao: Toast 2 tablespoons of coriander, then infuse into Essensia for 1 hour. Add 1 teaspoon of simple syrup or agave nectar.

Place ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake hard to mix. Strain up into a martini glass and garnish with a lemon peel.
