We're back to Sean Connery as Bond for the last Martini and my last Mofo post. The film to go with the Lemon Meringue Pie Martini is Goldfinger and this cocktail is made with real edible gold leaf.
The gold leaf was purchased via Ebay and was tricky to use needing two pairs of tweezers!
Lemon Meringue Pie Martini
1 shot of vodka
1 shot of Limoncello
1/2 shot of Galliano
3 shots of pineapple juice
Edible gold leaf
Shake the ingredients over ice in a cocktail shaker. Strain into a martini glass and use tweezers to float pieces of edible gold leaf on the surface of the drink. Garnish with a cocktail cherry.
Goldfinger was the third Bond film and the first 'blockbuster' costing more than the first two films combined with extensive use of technology, gadgets and promotional tie-ins. Hope enjoyed the martini series, we've certainly enjoyed drinking them! Now I'm off to spend November catching up on all the blogs I've not had chance to look at this month!
