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.

Ingredients

  • 1 pesticide-free, food-grade orchid
  • Filtered water
  • Ice cubes
  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 1 ounce elderflower liqueur, such as St. Germain
  • 3/4 ounce white cranberry juice
  • 1/2 ounce lime juice

Directions

  1. Place orchid in a 2-inch round ice ball mold; fill with filtered water and freeze.
  2. 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.
  3. Place orchid ice ball in a coupe; pour vodka mixture over ice ball. Serve immediately.
