2 cups water
2 tbsp sugar
½ tsp kosher salt
2½ cups plain popcorn
4 oz. popcorn water
1½ oz butterscotch ripple
1 oz vodka
½ oz heavy cream
1) For the popcorn water, in a small saucepan bring the water, sugar and salt to a boil over medium heat. Add popcorn and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 5 minutes and strain mixture through cheesecloth, reserving the liquid and discarding the kernels. Allow to cool.
2) For the martini, place a handful of ice cubes into a cocktail shaker. Add popcorn water, butterscotch ripple, vodka and cream. Shake well to combine and pour into a chilled martini glass.
