Here at Putney Farm we enjoy our cocktails, but we also farm and cook. A while ago, while researching Julia Child’s recipes, we noticed that she was well-known for enjoying “upside-down” or “inverted” Martini’s (God bless her). This is a version of the classic cocktail that swaps the ratios of gin and vermouth, turning the Martini into something of a “long drink”. And if you are cooking for hours at a time (or gardening with a cocktail- something we highly recommend), the Inverted Martini is a very tasty drink.
- To turn inside out or upside down
- To reverse the position, order, or condition of
- Find a drink recipe or create one that “inverts” the ingredients or other elements of the cocktail. Write up the recipe and your thoughts about the drink, add a picture or two, and post it on your own blog, Tumblr, or eGullet’s Spirits and Cocktails forum. If you don’t have any other way of posting, you can also email us at stewartbputney (at) gmail (dot) com.
- Include in your post the MxMo logo and a link back to both the Mixology Monday and Putney Farm sites. And once the round-up is posted, a link to that summary post would be most appreciated.
- Get your submission in by February 18th. Any time of day is fine and we are happy to take a few stragglers.
Thanks again to Fred Yarm at Cocktail
Virgin Slut for keeping Mixology Monday going.
As for us, we would certainly like to “invert” the outcome of the Super Bowl. Oh well. And here are some more photos. Just because.

Whoo Hoo! I like Mixology Monday much better than Meatless Monday. 🙂 I’m not much of a cocktail maker, just like to sip them. However, my sister is quite the cocktail mixer and she gave me the recipe for a French 75, which I love. I’ll have to invert this recipe and see what I come up with. 🙂
That would probably pretty tasty! Hope you submit the recipe and a photo (its good fun).
I already thought of my inversion, now we just need to see if vision and reality align. Great topic! My condolences about your boys; I was pulling for them.
Such is life (besides the Giants won the Series, we aren’t complaining). Looking forward to seeing your drink…
PutneyFarm, We agree that inverting the results of the SuperBowl would be excellent indeed. Alas, we were thinking of with coming up with a Monday Mourning Cocktail, but perhaps we’ll focus our energy on an inverted cocktail (or cover both). A white (or clear) Vieux Carré might be in order in keeping with the NOLA theme, and because white is the color of mourning in many countries (other than the US that is).
Very cool. White whiskey and pisco instead of rye and cognac? Just curious… 😉
That is exactly what the current thought process would be at the moment. White whiskey (or moonshine) is a given. But we are seeing some non-aged brandy on some shelves, or may even try experimenting with Grappa in addition to Pisco.
Putney Farm, Our post is up. Eau de Vie wins the taste test. We also created a White Manhattan we named “Nemo.”
We decided to post another inversion (hope it’s OK). We turned a classic Sidecar into a Pisco Pedicab:
Hurray! I’m stoked for this theme.
I refuse to even think about a purple cocktail just because I’m in Raven country. Although I do love purple. …
You can create a cocktail and call it the Lombardi Trophy, it certainly won’t be in the Bay Area… 😦 😉
Great theme! I’m already thinking. It’s just a pity I’ll be away for a couple of weeks
I think you should invert your pousse caffees!
We can sneak you in if a bit late… 😉
wow what a theme!!!
Hope you have fun w/ it!
Would it be okay to invert a favorite childhood candy?
Sure. Does it include booze? 😉
Lovin’ this theme, Steve. Here is my submission. Cheers!
Nice work, very cool using the ice. And the drink is very tasty!
What a fun idea–thanks for my weekend project idea 🙂
A very fun project, we hope…
Cool and timely idea. My entry:

Great theme this month! Here’s our submission: http://wp.me/p2Kswh-8g
I went with a simple one – inverting the proportions on the Vieux Carré.
This was a tough one for me! But we came up with something light and nice. It’s blue to! http://ratedrcocktails.com/2013/02/18/mxmo-inverted-iat-iam/
I inverted candy into a cocktail – and got a really sweet dessert cocktail out of it:
