Skol Martini

For some time, I've had the concept of a purple and yellow martini to name after my favorite football team. Maybe all the Minnesota Vikings need to succeed this year is an inspirational cocktail. Right? Either way, here's a purple cocktail with a lemon Viking horn. (It really is a nice deep team colored purple, it's just hard to tell against the black photography backdrop.)

Skol Vikings!
  • 3 oz Absolut Currant
  • 2 oz Creme De Cassis
  • 1/2 oz Blue Curacao
  • Splash of Lemon Juice
  • Lemon Peel
Chill an up glass with crushed ice and water. Shake the liquid ingredients with ice in a shaker until it sweats. Strain into the glass and garnish with the lemon peel carved into the iconic Viking's horn.
