Drink Recipe: Felix Martini

1531

Our story on the City of Champions reminded us of the old phrase, “Breakfast of Champions.” Perhaps it’s only something literature geeks may know, but it isn’t just a Wheaties cereal slogan. In the Kurt Vonnegut Jr. novel, a waitress says “Breakfast of Champions” each time she delivers a martini. We asked Travis Fourmont, cocktail ambassador for Great Lakes Wine & Spirits, for his “ultimate martini” recipe. Here’s one he developed for Café Felix in Ann Arbor — just to kick your morning off right.

Ingredients

2 ounces Two James 28 Island Vodka
½ ounce Dolin Blanc vermouth
2 dashes orange bitters

Directions

Serve stirred over ice and strain into a coupe glass; garnish with a lemon twist.
