In T.C. Boyle’s The Terranauts, you’ll follow 8 scientists literally experimenting under glass as they live in an artificial environment similar to what we may someday construct on Mars. Pre-closure, one of the Terranauts hits the vodka and smokes pretty hard, so this Naut-tini is for him.
2 oz Stolichnaya Vodka
.5 oz Mezcal
Muddle six of the raspberries with the vodka and mezcal. Double strain into an ice-filled shaker. Stir for 15 seconds. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with the remaining raspberry.
