“Aylesbury Duck is a new vodka created by three bartenders. It’s made from Rocky Mountain winter wheat, so you get a nice, soft, grain character from it. These guys understand what bartenders need, which is the same thing you need at home: affordable, high-quality ingredients to make great cocktails. The label on the bottle, which shows two ducks in a boxing match, reminded me of my grandfather, who was once a boxer in Chicago, so I came up with a drink called The Southpaw. With vodka cocktails, it’s best to keep it simple. In this one, the white vermouth brings in all sorts of herbs and botanicals, and the sherry adds a little salinity. But it’s still a straight-forward cocktail: clean, crisp, and refreshing. It’s something your martini drinker—even your gin martini drinker—might enjoy.”

¾ ounce La Gitana Manzanilla sherry
½ ounce Martini & Rossi bianco vermouth
