Happy Hour: Vodka Tan Mash Up


A few weekends ago I found myself at the Union Street Festival with Dear, Yum, and Geek. We started off at Umami, a sushi restaurant where Dear is friends with the bartender. As a favor to us, she had him make his specialty: a vodka tangerine mash up. It's an original concoction that he calls a faded crane, but I like calling it a vodka tan mash up. Refreshingly wonderful, this drink isn't too sweet, too sour, or too strong. In fact its only problem is that it goes down a little too easily - so drink carefully when you consume these. I'll definitely be serving them at my next party and you can too. Get the recipe, just



Vodka Tan Mash Up
From Umami

1 tangerine, cut into four wedges
2 oz vodka
1 tsp fine sugar (or small sugar cube)
1-2 dashes of bitters
soda water
juice of one lime

  1. In a chilled old fashioned glass, muddle tangerine, sugar and bitters.
  2. Add ice, pour vodka and lime juice over it and stir.
  3. Top off with a quality soda water. Drink up!

Serves 1.

This sounds awesome! Can't wait to try it, but have to ask... How do you "muddle" a tangerine? Is it like creaming butter & sugar for cookies?
