Guestbook Recipe: Velvet Crush

This past Sunday cubes and I got married. Being foodies, instead of a traditional guestbook, we asked our guests to bring and share with us their favorite recipes. As we try our hands at these recipes we'll be sharing the results here with you.

To kick off this series and to celebrate our first weekend as husband and wife, we're going to feature a drink recipe. Hope you enjoy it. I personally can't wait to try it.

Velvet Crush
Shared by Nathan Hunsperger


  • 2 shots Organic Vodka
  • 1 1/2 shots Cucumber Juice
  • 1/2 shot Grapefruit Juice
  • 1/2 shot Falernum
  • 1/2 Lime
  • 2 Sage Leaves


  • Combine in shaker and serve in chilled glass.

Before this recipe, I hadn't heard of Falernum. A quick Google search solved the mystery.
"Falernum is a flavored syrup that originated in Barbados.  From there it gets a little hazier.  Falernum can be alcoholic or non-alcoholic.  It generally contains ginger, cloves, and lime, but could include any number of other ingredients for flavor.  Most recipes include some sort of bitter almond flavor.  It is typically yellowish in color, but not necessarily (Source with recipe)."
Everyone ready now? OK then. Raise your glasses and toast.
Mazel Tov! 

Have a great weekend. We sure will.

  1. Don't waste your money on these pans. they work for a few weeks, but after that you'll be using more and more oil to keep food from sticking. Eventually even the oil won't help. One of the worst kitchen utensils I ever bought.
