No. 12 Vodka
Pickled Bean Caesar
Great ingredients take this classic to a new level! It was surprisingly easy to make the mix from scratch and of course there is no substitute for a fantastic vodka like our No.12.
- 1 tube of tomato paste (130g)
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 25mL fresh-squeezed lemon juice
- 25mL simple syrup
- 500mL water
- 1 jar of clam juice (240mL)
- ½ tsp Maggie seasoning or Worcestershire sauce
Blend ingredients in a blender and let chill in the fridge for an hour to thicken.
The Cocktail (makes 2):
- 75mL Laneway No.12 Vodka
- 25mL pickled or fermented bean juice
- 500mL Clamato juice
Add ingredients to a shaker with ice and shake to chill. Taste and adjust sugar if necessary – if your bean brine is salty, you may need to add an extra tablespoon or so of simple syrup to balance the flavours. Rim a lowball glass with mixed Espelette pepper and Maldon salt, pour in the cocktail (with or without ice) and garnish with fresh dill. We served ours with some crispy pancetta and a fermented bean to round out the umami flavours.
