Signature Drink- Voodoo Doll Martini

The Voodoo Doll Martini is a longtime favorite at Bath City Bistro in Mount Clemens, says Molly Biljan, the bistro’s head bartender. "It’s just the blend of flavors- it’s not too strong, but more of a subtle flavor with sweetness," Biljan says. "And it’s pretty. It’s one of those drinks-they have one, and they want a couple of them."

0.5 oz. raspberry liqueur
A splash of cranberry juice
A splash of sour

Where it all began—the heart of the exotic cocktail as enjoyed for centuries in Jamaica. One of sour (lime juice), two of sweet (demerara sugar), three of strong (fine Jamaican rum), four of weak (some ice). Plus five of spice to make it nice (allspice and bitters).

In a cocktail shaker combine the following ingredients:

• 1 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice

• 3/4 oz. Demerara simple syrup*

• 1/4 oz. St. Elizabeth's Allspice Dram

• 3 oz. Appleton Estate 12 Year Old Rare Blend

• 2 dashes Angostura Bitters
