The Nick and Nora martini

It's summer, and here is the first in my 
weekly Saturday Sippers! postings.

In our adventurous quest to procure the perfect summer cocktail recipe, we came across this delicious libation—the Nick and Nora martini. It's bright and sassy, just they way Nick and Nora from the Thin Man series were. The ingredients are unusual and perhaps even a little eccentric,  just like N & N, but combined together they make a damned refreshing summer drink! 

3 oz Tanqueray gin
1 oz Lillet blanc
2 oz grapefruit juice
juice of half a lime
splash of cardamom-infused simple syrup

shake, strain, pour in a glass
garnish with a lime or a grapefruit slice

Makes 2 spunky drinks.
