White Orchid Cosmo
There’s no fear of staining your cocktail dress with this cosmo — it’s made using white cranberry juice. The recipe is from “Cocktails and Amuse Bouches,” by chef Daniel Boulud and mixologist Xavier Herit.
1 pesticide-free, food-grade orchid
2 ounces vodka
1 ounce elderflower liqueur, such as St. Germain
3/4 ounce white cranberry juice
1/2 ounce lime juice
Place orchid in a 2-inch round ice ball mold; fill with filtered water and freeze.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Add vodka, elderflower liqueur, cranberry juice, and lime juice; shake vigorously to combine and strain into a small carafe.
Place orchid ice ball in a coupe; pour vodka mixture over ice ball. Serve immediately.
