Try This: Spiced Moon Martini with Kim Crawford

Kim Crawford Spiced Moon Martini Recipe

Happy Halloween! Just wanted to pop on here quickly and share an oh-so yummy wine-based cocktail recipe that's perfect this time of year— the Spiced Moon Martini! It's perfect for any Pinot Noir fans in the house (hollaaaah!), and it's relatively quick and easy to whip up. Cheers!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 oz Kim Crawford Pinot Noir  
  • 1 oz aged rum
  • ¾ oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ½ oz Spiced Honey Syrup, warm (See instructions)
  • ½ oz egg white
  • Freshly grated cinnamon for garnish

  • SPICED HONEY SYRUP
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup honey
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • Peel from half of orange
  • 6 cloves

DIRECTIONS:

  • Add all ingredients except cinnamon to a cocktail tin and shake until you feel the mixture foaming. Add ice to the tin and shake hard for 10-15 seconds. Double-strain into a chilled cocktail glass, sprinkle with cinnamon, and serve.

  • SPICED HONEY SYRUP
  • Add all ingredients to a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until warm and fragrant. (Avoid overcooking, as the syrup should not reduce and thicken.) Remove from heat; strain and discard solids. The syrup can be refrigerated for up to two weeks. However, it should be gently rewarmed to create the cocktail.
