Into The Bottle
It’s 2 ferry rides and winedy roads through beautiful Shelter Island and Sag Harbor to Sylvester & Co aka The Modern General - home to Dreamy Coffee Co. Growing up, my mom would take me and we’d pick up accents for home and for life — enamel platters, oversized art books, Danish raincoats.. it was a staple. It all seemed effortlessly cool and sophisticated. Not like me, not then.. but one day, I thought.. one day I’d be grown up and cool and I’d pick up enamel platters for dinner parties.
When the team behind The Modern General x Dreamy Coffee Co reached out about making an espresso martini, I was an instant yes. We haven’t been immune to the espresso martini bug - we’re human - and they’re perfect. We thought about dimension, texture, sweetness. We thought about how delicious a proper Irish Coffee is.. how the freshly grated nutmeg just hits. We thought about espresso served with an orange twist and about how Dreamy Cold Brew has a rich chocolate dimension. And so we distilled orange peel and some top shelf nutmeg into our organic corn vodka and used that to fortify the Dreamy Cold Brew.
We battled over the sugar before deciding that anyone shaking one up could easily add some sugar and we left it on the dryer side. Just pour into a shaker tin with ice, shake til the strainer ices over, and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a few fresh coffee beans and enjoy.
Want to customize your martini? Add simple syrup for a bit more foam. Dust it with coco powder or nutmeg for a little more umph. Or serve with tonic water over ice and drop in an orange twist.
A Note from Lynda Sylvester, Dreamy Coffee Co.
"I love martinis, but I love partnering with other creative people even more. To me, true entrepreneurs are a scarcity and the more scarce something is, the more precious it becomes. Matchbook Distillery Co. is a precious gem in the heart of Greenport, NY.
I’ve always dreamt of marrying our Dreamy Cold Brew Coffee - famous for its perfect hint of chocolate flavor - with a spirit, which naturally led to making what I lovingly dubbed “Dreamytinis” - essentially espresso martinis with our cold brew at local events over the years. When my team brought Matchbook to my attention in 2021, it was obvious that their ethos of turning to nature for inspiration and unique releases was harmonious with my “return to Main Street” philosophy and dedication to small, independent manufacturers, makers, and artists.
I also love the idea of bridging the North and South Forks with a cocktail offering. So hop on the Ferry, grab a bottle, and enjoy the ride.”
