rain on the window -
the smell of fresh spring onions -
fish sears in the pan

The Sprightly Herring
We wanted a clear, schnapps-y cocktail with our starter of Matjes Herring, but I could not find anything that seemed right. So this is one I made up. 2oz Vodka, 1/2oz Dry Vermouth, 1/2oz Monin Original Triple Lime, 2-3 dashes of celery bitters. Stirred with ice and served with a slice of lime.
Wonderfully named by Monika, this went very well with the Matjes, but was less exciting on its own. Gin may have been a better spirit, or it needed something else in it, to round out the flavours.
