Ingredients

For the fresh goumi berry syrup:

  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/3 cups fresh goumi berries

For the martini:

  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • 1 1/2 ounces goumi berry syrup
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Instructions

For the fresh goumi berry syrup:

  1. In a small saucepan, heat the water and sugar until the sugar dissolves. Add the goumi berries and cook over medium heat until the skins begin to pop, about 3 minutes. Pour through a fine mesh sieve or strainer and press the berries to get out all the juice. Discard the seeds and skins. Chill syrup until ready to use.

For the martini:

  1. Place all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with lemon slices if desired.
