The History Lesson
The Ruthless Spud
created by David Frederick, bartender at 9 Maple Avenue in George Crum’s hometown of Saratoga Springs, New York.
In a cocktail shaker, combine:
- 3 slices of cucumber
- Very thin slice of rustic potato
- Dash of olive juice
Muddle together ‘til it’s as murky as the potato chip’s origin. Then add:
- 3 oz. Chopin potato vodka
Shake well. Strain into martini glass. Sip again and again until you realize you’ve gone through the whole thing all by yourself.
