Result: Homeschooling with Cocktails

Emily says:

The first homeschooling with cocktails video I made was about the Fibonacci sequence and the golden ratio and then a look at whether you could use the golden ratio to come up with cocktail ratios! So, here is a Fibonacci-inspired variation on a martini:

The Golden Radio Martini
1 1/4 oz. Vikre Juniper Gin
3/4 oz. dry vermouth
1/2 oz. Vikre Øvrevann Aquavit
1/4 oz. St. Germain elderflower liqueur
1/4 oz. Yellow Chartreuse
Stir all the ingredients with ice until well-chilled and strain into a cocktail coupe or martini glass. Garnish with a lemon twist, if desired.
