Onyx Almond Joy Martini
Ingredients: Toasted almond infused Onyx Moonshine, half and half, simple syrup, coconut and cocoa rim
This fancy little beauty offers a play on both flavors and texture, while still being reminiscent of the candy bar for which it is named. Let’s start by talking about the base liquor. If you’ve never tried Onyx before, you might be a bit put off by the idea of drinking, well, moonshine. But this locally sourced spirit is surprisingly smooth, with a simple flavor palate which lends itself to sophisticated mixology. The Pond House Onyx is further enhanced by the addition of an infusion of fresh blanched and roasted almonds. The delicate flavor of the infused Onyx could be easily overpowered, but the remaining ingredients are simple enough to let it shine. The garnish is a nice finishing touch, adding notes of both coconut and chocolate.
