Saigon Kick Martini

I've recently discovered the dark red botanical spirit, Hum. It's flavor is strong and sharp and has a very unique herbal/ginger flavor. A little bit goes a long way and in this case, the coconut milk helps tone down the sharpness a bit. I'd describe it as sweet coconut with a ginger bite.
  • 1 oz Hum Botanical Liqueur
  • 2 oz Malibu Coconut Rum
  • 1 oz Peach Schnapps
  • 2 oz Coconut Milk
  • Splash of Grenadine 
  • Pickled Ginger Slices
Chill an up glass with crushed ice and water. Shake all liquid ingredients except the grenadine with ice in a shaker until it sweats and strain into the glass. Garnish with a skewer of pickled ginger slices and a drizzle of grenadine into the center.
