Spring onions are sweeter than their year-round relatives, making them a welcome addition to a smooth vodka martini. The drink is sold as a Gibson-like bottled cocktail at Denver's Beast + Bottle, where pickled ramps take the place of a martini's traditional olive garnish, adding a briny finish and yet another seasonal touch.
Make sure you don't overinfuse the vodka, as the process happens quickly and the flavor is strong. Once your infusion is ready, it's a three-ingredient, one-step process to springy cocktail success.
