Drink Name: The Glisten


1.5 oz. Moonstone Asian Pear Sake

1 oz. Deep Eddy Ruby Red Vodka

¾ oz St. Germaine Liqueur

½ oz. fresh lemon juice

4 dashes of Bittermans Hopped Grapefruit Bitters

Shake ingredients with the Perlini Carbonized System. Serve in a chilled martini glass. Garnish with an edible wild orchid.

“This is a great summer cocktail, with subtle hints of pear, a sure crisp taste of ruby red grapefruit from the Deep Eddy Ruby Red Vodka, balance from the Bittermans Hopped Grapefruit Bitters and fresh lemon, and floral notes from the St. Germaine Liqueur.  The carbonation brings forward all the spirits to shine,” said Frank Martucci, President of the United States Bartenders Guild Rhode Island Chapter and General Manager of Beverage Operations at Twin River Casino.
