Atlanta Contemporary welcomes a local bartender to become the Mixologist-in-Residence – here we invite the purveyors of Atlanta’s cocktail culture to share their story – over a finely crafted drink – with our audiences. 

Mixologist-in-Residence Erika Moore presents a cocktail you can make at home! Click here to watch Erika’s video on how to make a Quarantine Martini.

Happy Cocktail Thursday! This Quarantine Martini is easy to make at home and refreshing. We have the turmeric to add a little spice and immune boosting properties as well as fresh orange juice that’s packed with Vitamin C. This dances perfectly with the botanicals of the gin and rosemary syrup.

Definitely try this at home!

2-3 cm Turmeric root
.75 oz Rosemary Syrup*
.75 oz Orange juice
2oz Gin
Orange Peel

*Rosemary Syrup: Boil 1/2 cup of water with a couple rosemary sprigs. Turn heat to low. Add 1/2 cup of sugar. Stir until sugar disappears.
