A true original. The Sunburst...

 The Sunburst is real original made using Saffron Vodka, St Germain and Aperol. Correctly made it is a complex and superb cocktail. Beautiful, balanced and not too sweet. This is the way it’s done at Eccolo Restaurant in Berkeley. The bar here makes it’s own Saffron Vodka by taking a mason jar and sprinkling the saffron grains generously to cover the bottom of the jar. Then they fill it with a top shelf vodka such as Hanger One or Grey Goose. They seal the jar and let it steep for week or more to make the infusion.  Another way to go is to try the outstanding Saffron Vodka made by Sub Rosa Spirits in Oregon.

2 oz Saffron Vodka
1/2 oz of St. Germain
1/2 oz of Aperol
meyer lemon twist

Place everything the rocks in a shaker… reserving the Aperol. Shake 20 times, then strain into a chilled martini glass. Gently add the Aperol… it should slide to the bottom of the glass. Garnish with the lemon twist. Sip and enjoy…
