Hazy Jane

Hazy Jane cocktail with vodka, orgeat, lemon juice, yogurt, and fresh cucumber

The Hazy Jane, by Tony Contreras at Tusk in Portland, is an odd duck – but goodness, is it a treat! The yogurt and cucumber provide a cool, rich base to the sweet-tart combo of lemon juice and orgeat, and a healthy pour of vodka keep the whole thing light and crisp.

Contreras’s original recipe for the Hazy Jane called for additional simple syrup – we’ve omitted it, because a full ounce of orgeat makes it more than sweet enough. If your orgeat is less sweet, or you’re using a richer Greek yogurt, you may wish to add up to a half-ounce (15 mL) of simple syrup to compensate.

Instructions

Vigorously shake all ingredients with ice. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a short ice-filled glass. Garnish with a cucumber slice and a pinch of dried sumac, if you’ve got it.
