This cocktail was created as part of the promotion for the May, 2010 release of Sex and the City 2. Aside from that association, this is one of my favorite ginger-flavored cocktails because the sweetness of the diluted honey syrup and the sour of the fresh lemon play so well with the spicy vodka. If you are a fan of ginger martinis, like this one, or any similar sort, the Red Over Heels is a drink to try.

If you cannot find ginger vodka at the store, it is very easy to do your own infusion.


Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice.

  3. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled martini glass.

  4. Lay lemon peel twirl across the rim of the glass with cocktail pick.

*To create Honey Syrup, combine 0.5 oz. water with 0.5 oz. honey.
