I have found a new perfect martini at the dimly lit Vig Bar. Judging a book by its cover, I ordered The Apricot Millionaire purely on name alone, so that fact that it was delicious going down was icing on my cocktail of a cake. After the guy from San Diego treated me to a second round, I got curious about the nectar and inquired with the bartender, who has given me the confidential recipe…and I am about to pass on to you the secret to Vig’s Saturday night success (OK, the DJ’s not half-bad either):

The Apricot Millionaire – House Cocktail, Vig Bar
3 parts Makers Mark
1 part Apricot Brandy
1 part simple syrup
3 dashes of lemon juice

Shake well with ice in a cocktail shaker and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Print out recipe and replicate to impress friends and cute male neighbors.

I’m not going to try and speculate what can be found in the exotic “Lemonade 161” or hard-to-pronounce “Kwakzalver.” You’ll just have to make the trip to Nolita and try them for yourselves.
