1 oz Sweet Vermouth (Vya)
1 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Grapefruit Marmalade (Mediterranean Organic Pink)
Shake with ice and double strain into a Double Old Fashioned glass full of fresh ice. Garnish with a grapefruit zest.
Two weekends ago, I finally spotted and purchased a jar of grapefruit marmalade at Harvest Co-op in Central Square so I could make a recipe that appeared in the TastingTable Best Cocktails of 2011 list. The Los Muertos was created by Alex Smith of Gitane's in San Francisco. Beside the marmalade, there was the pairing of sweet vermouth and lime which reminded me of the Fig Leaf Cocktail, but instead of rum, this drink was tequila based. Or perhaps with the dual citrus components and the sweet vermouth, it later reminded me a little of the whiskey-based Oriental.
