Brandon chose to focus on a truly unique spirit, with very few parallels within the market. A distillate of fresh sorghum juice and syrup, there is little else like it and it offers a profile all its own. Brandon emphasized the savory side of it with this minimalist build, allowing the choice of soy sauce or fish oil to dial up that salinity and umami profile in this martini format. Leave it to a martini master to develop this kind of take.

What You Need:


Shake with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass.
