The Dirty Kumquat

A few weeks back I picked up a bottle of kumquat-infused vodka at a harvest exchange. I sipped a little neat, but decided to hand the bottle over to a professional for mixing. Enter Ephiram, of Anywhere Laboratories.

We met up on a Friday afternoon to talk about mixed-use spaces: I’m researching shared kitchen spaces, and Ephiram has plans for a shared space for mechanics (among many other things).

He brought a few things to mix, and after a little testing, he came up with this recipe.

The Dirty Kumquat

  • 1 ounce kumquat-infused vodka*
  • 4 ounces ginger ale
  • Squeeze of fresh lime
  • Splash of grenadine

*I’m pretty sure you’ll need to make this yourself…

Mix (with a chop stick, if that’s what you have on hand), and adjust to taste–we were mixing in Mason jars, so it wasn’t an exact pour.

Enjoy with friends.

    I love this! So summery, which is making me nostalgic, already.

      You should make that trip to Fresno – there’s still plenty of summery weather 🙂

    That made me laugh. I could hear you saying it, and yeah, I’m sure you’re right. 🙂

    Also, I’m reserving these pictures (the top shot in particular) for later in the day when it’s hot. That just looks so refreshing!
