recipe // full moon martini

While I was on my road trip, I woke up in the middle of the night because the moon had totally illuminated my sleeping spot — turns out it was a ginormous full moon, hanging low in the night sky. Totally breathtaking. It was just an impactful, yet simple moment. When I returned, I was so moved by this memory that I asked our recipe contributor Claire McAleese to whip up a martini inspired by tonight’s full moon.

Directions

Combine 1/2 cup water with a 1/2 cup coconut cream, mix well. Pour mixture into circular ice cube molds. Place into the freezer and allow at least 5-6 hours to freeze. (Note: this recipe can be doubled to accommodate more ice cubes.)

Using a coupe champagne glass, wet half the glass rim with a wet paper towel and dip wet side into a small amount of sugar. Set glass aside.

In a cocktail shaker place vodka and plenty of ice, shake well and strain into the prepared glass. Place moon-shaped ice cube into glass and drop a blackberry or two into the cocktail.
