Of course you may steam your lobsters in plain water, but the vodka gives a nice subtle flavor and provides a sauce.

  • 4 Lobsters (1 1/2 Pounds Each)
  • 1 Cup Vodka
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 6 Tablespoons Cold Butter (In 6 Pieces)
  • 4 Tablespoons Chopped Fresh Tarragon
  1. You will need to prepare these lobsters two at a time.
  2. In large-size pot add vodka and water. Bring to boil. Insert a rack or 2 small ones on bottom of pot. Place 2 live lobsters on top of rack and cover with lid. Cook for 14 minutes on medium-high. Remove lobsters and keep warm while steaming the remaining two.
  3. When all lobsters are cooked remove juices from pot and transfer to small-size saucepan. Boil rapidly down to about 1 cup. Piece by piece, whisk in cold butter. Add tarragon and serve sauce with lobsters.
  4. Serves 4
  5. "Work With What You Got!"
