The General Tso Martini: Canton, Luksusawa Vodka and Grand Marnier

OrangeMartiniWeb 233x300 The General Tso Martini: Canton, Luksusawa Vodka and Grand MarnierA Potato Vodka Complimented with Grand Marnier and Domain de Canton 

Created by Zach Stamler, written by Matt Goldstein

Inspired by an open bar in Old City Philadelphia’s premiere martini bar, the Continental, a somewhat lit Zach had the itch to start experimenting and created a work of art.  This work of genius started with Luksusawa Potato Vodka, Grand Marnier and Canton liqueur’s to compliment.  Domaine de Canton is a small batch liqueur made with the finest eaux de vie in France, XO and VSOP Grand Champagne Cognacs only.  With ginger root from Indo China, the Canton is then hand made with all natural ingredients; Tahitian vanilla beans, Provencal honey, and Tunisian ginseng. 

According to their web site, “Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur was inspired by the French tradition in which sweet and fresh elixirs were fortified by fine eaux de vie and Cognac. Named for the ginger estate of Domain de Canton, this aromatic elixir first became popular with the French during colonial Indochina.”

The Grand Marnier can be substituted with Cointreau and the Luksusawa can be substituted with a potato vodka such as Glacier, Chopin or Boyd & Blair.
