Memorable Father’s Day Martinis

Some of our father figures are known for their no-nonsense attitudes while other times their wit is endless. Either way, we’ve got a martini for him! For practical, no-nonsense Dad, we polished a classic Gibson martini with savory house made pickled pearl onions. For sweet & silly Dad, we added fancy to a French martini with vanilla bean infused vodka. Either way he’ll appreciate the extra touches and the time together to enjoy them. We know a lot of well rounded men who will love both!

Infusing your own vodka is an absolute breeze and it is a great way to capture all the flavor from a precious Vanilla Bean. Once you make it, you’ll never go back. We tapped our favorite local spirits for this recipe using Oola Distillery vodka for a smooth, clean finish. The playful froth in this martini comes from the shaken pineapple juice. Enjoy!

The Gibson martini is traditional and crisp. We pickled our own pearl onions using our house blend Pickling Spice. We also used Oola’s Gin that has been cask aged in old whiskey barrels which gives it a golden hue. Adding a dash of the brine to the martini makes the gin go down even easier and really completes it. At the end, you’ll be left with a tasty pickled pearl onion.

Now go make your dad a drink and raise a glass! 😊

Our pickling spice, seen above, is packed with complex flavors that truly make the best pickled veggies. Pearl onions aren’t the only things that are delicious pickled — carrots, kohlrabi, cauliflower, peppers, oh my!
