“Mr. Castevet came in, holding in both hands a small tray on which four cocktail glasses ran over with clear pink liquid. “Mr. Woodhouse? A Vodka Blush. Have you ever tasted one? They’re very popular in Australia,” Mr. Castevet said. He took the final glass and raised it to Rosemary and Guy. “To our guests,” he said. “Welcome to our home.”
- Rosemary’s Baby, Ira Levin
I just finished reading this fabulously creepy book in which a couple classy cocktails are featured. The Vodka Blush being one. The recipe is simple. Try a batch for yourself! I promise you won’t have any devil babies.
+ 2 1/2 oz vodka
+ 3/4 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
+ Splash of grenadine (I made my own)
Combine in a cocktail shaker, shake and strain.
